James Burton – Photography

About James

Jim began using a film camera when he was eight and began doing his own darkroom work as a child.  Later, in college in Tempe, Arizona, he fell deeply in love with the American Southwest. His career as a scientist and archaeologist took him across four continents, but Arizona remained, by far, his favorite place on the planet.  When he retired from academia in 2015, he returned to Arizona and found time to use a camera again, together with a computer.  This has given him the ability to create digital images that express how he experiences the desert.
