John Barton is a photographer who has specialised in monochrome photography for over 40 years.

In that time his main interest has been in photographing the natural landscape and smaller natural objects. He has been drawn to the wilder landscape and less populated areas which can sometimes appear to have little immediate attraction. Closer inspection often shows that even the most unpromising subject can reveal an unexpected power and beauty.

Using monochrome materials or converting a digital image to monochrome enables the photographer to emphasise the drama of light, shade and form in the subject.

John has had several one-man and joint exhibitions.
