SANTA ANA, Calif. - A selection of photographs by Orange County photographer Edward Pinchiff are currently on exhibit through April 19, 2013, in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal as part of John Wayne Airport's Community Focus Space Program. Pinchiff's photography can be seen on the Departure (upper) Level near the security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.

The featured images showcase Yosemite National Park in the lesser-seen season of winter, as well as images from the annual Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade.

"I see photographic opportunities in terms of time as well as subject matter - nature when it is most elemental and people when they are emotional and living in the moment," said Pinchiff.

The JWA exhibition features photographs, a selection of which can be seen below.

Born and raised in Orange County, Pinchiff developed an appreciation for photography in the late 1960's when, at the age of seven, he borrowed the family camera and looked at life through the lens. Childhood vacations to the High Sierra Mountains cemented his interest in Yosemite's landscape. Pinchiff is also passionate about his hometown, Huntington Beach, California, where he also serves as a planning commissioner.
