About John


John Caruso has been interested in photography since his early childhood. He can remember his delight when his grandmother—whom he will always associate with the myriad boxes of slides from trips and family events—let him use her camera for the first time. For a five year old, seeing the world through a view-finder and pressing the shutter release was a heady experience…not to mention the enchantment of seeing his very own vision projected in Ektachrome brilliance once the roll was developed.

Today, whether shooting film or digital, John still feels the same level of excitement and wonder every time he makes an exposure. Though his photographic eye has changed, evolved, and developed over the years, the same youthful thrill is with him each time he looks trough a view finder.

Based in the Chicagoland area, John enjoys selling his photographs at fine art fairs and festivals, as well as displaying his work in galleries. His photographs have also been featured in magazines, on web sites, and on book covers. Most recently his work was chosen to hang in the John Hancock Tower Observatory in addition to being used in their electronic telescopes and souvenir pieces.
