John Nichols

Photographer

Portrait by Donna Granata - 2011              

John Nichols

Yogi Berra may have counseled “when you get to a fork in the road, take it,” but photographer John Nichols is apt to not only take the fork, but will probably examine it, learn from it, and happily follow wherever the path will take him.  Or, perhaps more accurately, wherever many paths might take him.  “Photographer” is too narrow a description.  He has been a teacher, museum curator, small business owner. He is a gifted essayist. He has served as stage manager at the Monterey Jazz Festival.  His passion for history and photography culminated in a superb collection of materials about the St. Francis Dam Disaster, purchased by the Museum of Ventura County. Guided by a belief that art can be a vehicle for social change, he and artist Gail Pidduck founded the AgArt Alliance.  It combines his respect for agriculture in Ventura County with art created by local artists. “With AgArt,” says John, “everything has come together.”
