John Bower's black-and-white photographs of abandoned houses, cemetery statues, and building facades are fine portraits, silver-gelatin renderings of an honored Indiana past. As First Lady Judy O'Bannon put it, John Bower's photographs are an exploration of the Soul of a people.
Bower has published 6 popular Indiana photography books, all celebrating Indiana?s unique, unseen, or unnoticed heritage. He has had over 20 one- and two-person exhibitions (a 4-month show was at the Indiana State Museum in 2007).
Bower?s work has been featured in over 50 different newspapers and periodicals. Reviews have included ?a visual treat? (Vincennes Sun-Commercial), ?expressive and powerful? (Indianapolis Star), and ?The pictures? Breathtaking!? (Mooresville Times). A cover story in the Purdue Alumnus called him ?Guardian of the Forgotten.?
