"Images of Iowa" Photo Exhibit by John Schultz


IMAGES OF IOWA will be on display in the Cowles Communication Center Gallery January 7-February 16, 2013.  This exhibit is an outgrowth of a commission from Bank Iowa Corporation in 2005. Many of the show’s images are a direct result of that commission, a request that has further stimulated what is becoming a passion for black and white fine art photography. In seeking composition and texture on a heartland theme, photographer John Schultz has exercised his predilection for being a broken down old romantic. The subject matter recalls impressions and the quality of light as seen by a young boy in the early 1950’s, a time before Morton buildings diminished the Iowa landscape. Schultz began serious photography when he worked as a student photographer for Simpson College’s public relations office. Following a hitch in the Navy, he became a full-time freelancer in 1976, specializing in magazine illustration and environmental portraiture. His work has appeared in The Iowan, several Meredith Corporation magazines, a number of promotional Des Moines books, and, for 28 years, he was a photographer for the Des Moines Metro Opera. For 30 years, he has responded as photographer for the Indianola Fire Department.
