John Montich

I discovered the horizon-less landscape genre early in my photography career. It started my fascination with abstraction, images that bend the ideas of object, scale and perspective while still evoking a small part of the representational. It also changed the way I looked at my representational work. Narrowing my vision to a close point of view became my style. Large objects described by a small distinct feature. Everyday ephemera are described with a minimum of background.

Using film and at times alternative processing I produce high contrast darkroom and unique transfer prints.

My work is in many private and corporate collections across the country. Exhibitions at the Armand Hammer Museum, Laguna Art Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Long Beach Museum of Art and Torrance Art Museum have included my photography. A solo exhibit at the University of La Verne’s Irene Carlson Gallery of Photography surveyed my singular transfer images. Cal Poly Pomona, Cypress College, El Camino College, Emeritus College, Long Beach City College and Porterville College have featured my work.
