John Snell


You have entered the photographic realm of Lexington, Kentucky photographer John W. Snell. Through his photos you'll experience some of the most beautiful places in America. Some images are snapshots, but most are his attempt to present new and unique vignettes of those places. 

"Ever since 1980, when I traded a friend $100 and two pickup truckloads of firewood for an old Minolta camera and two lenses, my life has not been the same. Each year, I spend numerous hours lugging heavy camera equipment through various venues, most often Red River Gorge in eastern Kentucky, searching for expressions of nature that speak to me in a special way. Sometimes I succeed photographically, but many times I just enjoy the walk in the woods...the mountains...beside streams and waterfalls. The effort is always refreshing and exciting. I trust that you'll experience some of that as you view my work."
