For me the printing process is part of the magic of photography. It’s that magic that can be exciting, disappointing, rewarding and frustrating all in the same few moments in the darkroom.  (John Sexton Quotes) In my mind I needed a symbol of today’s technology, and I realized that what I wanted to photograph was the Space Shuttle. And so that’s where Places of Power came into being  (John Sexton Quotes) For me the printing process is part of the magic of photography. It’s that magic that can be exciting, disappointing, rewarding and frustrating all in the same few moments in the darkroom  (John Sexton Quotes) It was amazing to watch him in the darkroom at an advanced age, still get excited when the results were pleasing. He still struggled like we all do in the darkroom and he struggled behind the camera, and when he had a success he was beaming  (John Sexton Quotes) And as part of my activity there, he had indicated he wanted me to work with him on that and conduct the various technical tests. And so a few months later I moved from Southern California up to the Monterey Peninsula where I still live today  (John Sexton Quotes) And friends of mine that had photography class in high school would develop the film and make prints and I’d take them back to the track and give ‘em away or try and sell them. Much to my parents’ dismay, I majored in photography in college  (John Sexton Quotes) I think the greatest photographers are the amateur photographers who do it because they love it. Arnold Newman is a good example; he is a consummate professional, but he’s also an ‘amateur’ in the pure sense of the word  (John Sexton Quotes) In 1979, I received a phone call from Ansel Adams asking me if I would be willing to consider coming to work for him. I was teaching photography in Southern California at that point  (John Sexton Quotes) It had rained on some vivid green ferns in Maine and it was quite beautiful. I was moving the camera slightly and studying the ground glass. Looking at those 20 square inches, trying to find out just what were the right elements to include  (John Sexton Quotes) One of the workshop participants had shown me a single 8 X 10 photograph of a power plant where he actually was the general manager of this power cooperative. It was quite magical to me  (John Sexton Quotes) You can also see sometimes that the best pictures are the ones where you didn’t try so hard, where you were just enjoying the process - and you didn’t even know why you were making the picture. It felt right. If someone asked, ‘Why are you making this picture?’ you probably couldn’t describe it very well - and that’s why it needs to be a photograph.  (John Sexton Quotes) I make photographs and still make photographs of the natural environment. It’s a love because that was part of my life before I was involved in photography.  (John Sexton Quotes) It was an experience that was exceptional. People frequently ask what it was like and it truly was inspiring. Sometimes during his lifetime, people would try and put him on a pedestal and that’s not where he wanted to be, but he was really a great individual.  (John Sexton Quotes) He was a very generous soul and was exceptionally dedicated to the medium of photography  (John Sexton Quotes) When the object that is produced, the photographic image has the ability to make tears come to your eyes; to inspire you to the point where you have to catch your breath, then nothing else matters  (John Sexton Quotes) When I teach and meet a class for the first time, you realize that there are people there that have exceptional abilities or have the potential to do exceptional things and you never know who those people are. My job is to provide the best information I can  (John Sexton Quotes) Whatever it takes to get the image to reach that level is what that photographer needs to do. And for me, I just have such a love of the tactile and sensuous quality of a black and white silver gelatin print  (John Sexton Quotes) And the camera position, the organization, looking for repeating forms, shapes, trying to set up a visual rhythm seemed to come very natural. All of a sudden I was in a forest of aluminum and steel rather than a forest that we might think of in a traditional sense  (John Sexton Quotes) Having photographed the landscape for a number of years and specifically working with trees and in the forest I found, without consciously thinking about it, that it was a great learning experience for me in terms of organizing elements  (John Sexton Quotes) I make photographs and still make photographs of the natural environment. It’s a love because that was part of my life before I was involved in photography  (John Sexton Quotes) I really don’t have any secrets. I’ve never met a photographer whose work I respected that had a secret because the secret lies within each and every one of us  (John Sexton Quotes) I remember being shocked when I came out from under the focusing cloth after a minute or two being submerged within that, at the startling green color of those ferns  (John Sexton Quotes) I remembered seeing it and it was this metallic turbine and I thought it was beautiful. I had never been in a power plant before, but I felt, without being overly dramatic, compelled to make photographs of this for myself  (John Sexton Quotes) I’ve never seen a surface that I think is more seductive in image making  (John Sexton Quotes) It was an experience that was exceptional. People frequently ask what it was like and it truly was inspiring. Sometimes during his lifetime, people would try and put him on a pedestal and that’s not where he wanted to be, but he was really a great individual  (John Sexton Quotes) So to me it’s very similar in terms of trying to distill within the image, those elements that are gonna form, hopefully, a compelling visual statement  (John Sexton Quotes) The first day at the power plant I found myself photographing some steam vents on the roof of the structure. And I remember consciously thinking that they were just like trees but they were metal  (John Sexton Quotes) The reason I do workshops is so I can learn, and I am fortunate that I’ve probably gained more from the whole experience of teaching than any one participant has. It is all about asking  (John Sexton Quotes) There is a considerable amount of manipulation in the printmaking from the straight photograph to the finished print. If I do my job correctly that shouldn’t be visible at all, it should be transparent  (John Sexton Quotes) We all start in this medium because of the magic and the challenge is to keep it going  (John Sexton Quotes)
