John Lamberton fires a warning shot challenging the status quo. Both witness and accomplice, John is a historical documentarian whose photographs look beyond the physical attributes of his subjects and take us deeper into a psyche that understands evolution is not only desired, but imperative.
While exploring the complexities of our existence, these images activate the mind to see beyond the superficial, allowing for an extrasensory experience. The viewer is drawn into a dimensionality where reality becomes more than mere surface.
These images and their presentation show us an evolving change in the appearance of our landscape, both social and physical. John directs the eye toward a raw and unvarnished cultural metamorphosis. Through the beauty of his imagery we are invited to explore cautionary tales for modern society.

They draw the viewer into a dimensionality where reality becomes more than mere surface.
