Photography by John Clemmer Opens in Art Gallery

Photography by John Clemmer on display until January 3, 2011.

Artist Statement:

John is a retired Navy Musician with 24 years of service. After his retirement in 1991, he attended The Portfolio Center in Atlanta and studied advertising photography. Since that time, he has developed his craft in architecture and interiors, and sets himself apart with quality, distinction, and a hard work ethic.

John is one of Atlanta's premier architectural photographers. His style is unmistakable, and commitment to quality is second nature to him. The direct results of the quality of John's work stem from his passion for it.

"My greatest passion in life is fine art, whether it be music, architecture, painting, photography. Beauty presents itself and I absorb it. Hopefully my work gives back some of what I take from life. I am grateful for the fun of doing it."
