Review 
  
“John Sexton has taken up where Ansel Adams left off, and he has done it with a powerful vision and a strong sense of purpose. His latest book, Recollections, is an essential volume for anyone who loves great photography.’ 
  
– David Hume Kennerly, Pulitzer Prize winning photographer  
  
“John Sexton’s images in Recollections portray idyllic landscapes in moments of rare beauty–seductive, mysterious, and vaguely familiar. Time slows down, movement ceases, the world becomes quiet, and if we are patient, the subtle whisperings of the land may be heard.” 
  
– Michael Kenna, photographer  
  
“I’ve always looked into John Sexton’s images of man and nature and found a vision beyond classic technical proficiency. Recollections exhibits a deep passion for nature that is expressed in a certain vibrancy of imagery. It is always refreshing to see a life’s work and a life full of photographic passion.” 
  
– Bruce Davidson, photographer  
  
“With photography changing so rapidly today, we have an ever greater need for someone to uphold the tradition of commitment to the dignity and beauty of nature, and of the meaningful expression of true and positive values. John Sexton exemplifies this commitment in his images, and has done so for over thirty years. To admire his work is not to regress in time, but to revel in the continuation of a mode of making images that uplifts us all and gives us hope.” 
  
– Peter C. Bunnell, McAlpin Professor of the History of Photography and Modern Art Emeritus, Princeton University  
  
Review 
  
“Sexton’s artistry illuminates the idea that within humanity’s dreams and intellect there exists a divine spark.” – WALTER CRONKITE, from his foreword to Places of Power  
  
“The images in Sexton’s Places of Power are rich and evocative. Immense detail is presented with a precision rarely seen in contemporary art photography. His expressive sensibility celebrates the energy and mystique of these places. All of the information is there, but the mystery remains. These are truly wonderful photographs!” 
  
–JERRY N. UELSMANN, Photographer  
  
“A flawless book.” Judge’s comments, Best of Category Award, 1990 New England Book Show.  
  
“We suspect that when the history of photography is written for the last two decades of this century, Sexton will occupy a prominent position. If you are a connoisseur of the fine print, treat yourself to a copy of Quiet Light.” 
  
– THE PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTOR  
  
“Sexton’s work glows—almost as if he had placed a light within his subject.” 
  
–THE WASHINGTON POST  
  
“There is not much to say except that it is beautiful, extraordinarily gentle and intimate, and one of those magic gestures that one can look at again and again, always discovering some new way that it touches the heart…” 
  
–JOHN NICHOLS, author
