How I Saw It

Editor’s note – Since I came to Stockton in the mid-seventies, and subsequently discovered the Haggin Museum, I’ve regarded it as one of the shiniest jewels in Stockton’s and San Joaquin County’s, crown. To have the CEO (now retired), Tod Ruhstallar, call me and request that I create a retrospective exhibit of my photography work of over more than 50 years, is a true honor.  I’m further honored by Cyndy Green asking to celebrate the opening of this exhibit in her video story below.  –Rich Turner
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
