DANA POINT RESIDENT'S INTRIGUING PHOTOGRAPHS FEATURED AT JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT
SANTA ANA, Calif. - From March 16 through April 13, a collection of scenic photographs from Dana Point resident Phillip Nardulli are on display at John Wayne Airport (JWA) as part of JWA's Community Focus Space Program. The photographs can be viewed on the Departure (upper) Level near security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C, and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.
Nardulli depicts his respect for nature through his primarily black and white photographic works. He selects subjects that encourage reflection and thought, adapting the treatment of light and composition to highlight each subject's essence. Using film with vintage and toy cameras, he captures the timeless quality of landscapes and ancient architectural forms. The images are printed on silver gelatin, watercolor and handmade papers.
"I am proud to see a local Dana Point resident showcase his artwork," said Board Chairwoman Lisa Bartlett. "The County is fortunate to have a world-class airport with an Arts Program that highlights the many talented artists within our community."

"I am thankful for the opportunity to share my photographic artwork with fellow travelers from around the world," said Phillip Nardulli. "If my work inspires viewers to take time to observe and treasure the Earth's unspoiled features, I have fulfilled my goal of sharing my appreciation of the planet's intrinsic wonders."
Nardulli became interested in photography in high school. He continued his photographic studies at Los Angeles Technical College and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. For over 35 years, Nardulli has captured images on six continents and his work continues to be exhibited across the world.
Upcoming Community Focus Space Program artists include Patricia Turnier (April 13 – May 18) and Stan Vosburg (May 18 – June 15).
