Photos taken by contributor John G. Evans, a man who has been suffering for many years from what is now known to be a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from a trauma faced during military service time. His artistic accomplishments began in 1972 while he was serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. He purchased his first camera and took photographs of his journeys, his buddies, and the places they were stationed. This was where he began his passion for photography. He has discovered over the years since that photography and poetry have allowed him a second chance at life, and have released him of his depressive states and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. He recently relocated to Boise, Idaho, to photograph the mountain ranges, rivers, canals, nature, wildlife, landscapes and weather.
About these photos: “These photographs are taken of the structures of a still functioning 17th century mission ‘Mission Espada’ in San Antonio, TX. The day I arrived to photograph, Christmas carols were being sung in the sanctuary by the local parish.”
