Meet first time La Quinta Arts Festival attendee, photographer John Scanlan. Based in Iowa and photographing since the late 1970’s, John and his wife, Deb, travel regularly all over Europe and the US to spots that highlight the “quiet and serene life”. Their “Windows to the World” philosophy and tagline is about photographing the essence, the soul and the beauty of a place. Their first international destination in 1986 was Ireland, as they have family roots there and the resulting photographs were sold at great success at arts festivals. They have been working as full-time photographers since.
Experience their photography at the La Quinta Arts Festival this March and be swept away by their ability to “offer a tribute to the uniqueness of the places we have visited, reflecting an admiration for the beauty, history or symbolism in each location. The result is a collection that, taken as a whole, offers a rare view of an unwavering appreciation for beauty and serenity in all its forms, both natural and cultivated.”
