November Artist of the Month – FRANK TALBOTT
SKY | Frank Talbott
“I spent some time this summer sitting on my deck, I soon became overwhelmed by the beauty of the sky. I began taking pictures of mostly just the sky with a little horizon in the distance. The big sky is evident to anyone who passes through this part of the country, and so I wanted to try to capture some of the beautiful and dramatic scenes that passed before me. It’s almost embarrassing to photograph the sky because it is so inadequate in representing the simple experience of just watching the big Arizona sky.”
Frank Talbott began his career in photography in the U.S. Navy. He attended Navy Photo School at Pensacola, Florida and spent three years on board two ships working as a photographer. After the Navy he attended Glendale College where he met his wife Pat. After college he and Pat lived in Venice, California and worked as an assistant in a photo studio. He started his own studio in 1970, and after thirty years in California, Frank and Pat moved to Greenehaven, Arizona to retire. Frank now does digital photography for web sites and enjoys working on the Colorado River as guide for the float trip through Glen Canyon. He also teaches a class in beginning digital photography at Coconino Community College. Frank’s work will be on display at the Powell Museum during the month of November.
