John Kleinhans

A former psychology professor, John Kleinhans became interested in photography in the early sixties after seeing prints by Edward Weston. Since 1992, Kleinhans concentrated on working with large format cameras and making platinum contact prints from 4 x 5 and 8 x 10 negatives. He published “An Image of Monhegan” the award-winning book of his platinum prints of Monhegan Island, in 2000.

Recent work has taken the format of digital color photography, and the resulting archival pigment prints continue to convey his perceptive, contemplative vision of the landscape.

Kleinhans has travelled extensively and has exhibited both at home and abroad. He is a member of the board of the Woodstock School of Art and a Trustee of the Woodstock Artists Association.
