It takes a special eye, considerable talent and skill to create photographs that are true works of art.Stockton photographer Rich Turner has all of that and more – a love of people and light and what Henri Cartier-Bresson called “The Decisive Moment.” That moment when action and light and all of the components of a scene join together to create a whole that is much much greater than the sum of its parts.If you go to Turner’s show, “How I Saw It,” running at the Haggin Museum from November 2022 through January 15, 2023, you can see his moments, his art, as he sees the world.It’s a world all around you right in front of your eyes. But it takes someone like Rich to show you what you are missing. –Cyndy Green
Cyndy Green has been intrigued by news since she got a toy printing press as a six year old. She switched to visual story telling at the age of 12 with her first still camera and moved to broadcasting after an internship in 1974. After 28 years in broadcast news and another 8 teaching broadcasting, she still can’t live without a camera in hand and an editing computer nearby, so in retirement she continues creating visual stories.
