John Vavruska

I am a photographer of nature and the landscape and am particularly drawn to the mountain environment of the American West and the Himalaya. I use a 4x5 view camera for black and white imagery and am a master darkroom printer, making gelatin silver prints in sizes up to 30-inch x 40-inch. For color photography I use a DSLR camera. The beauty, intricacy and mystery of the natural world are my enduring inspiration.
