RICH TURNER: A Career in Progress


On View: November 19, 2020 - January 17, 2021

RICH TURNER: A Career in Progress, digs deep into his files to share photographs of  Antarctica, newspaper work from the Roseville Press-Tribune and Stockton Record, and highlights of his fine-art and commercial work in the San Joaquin County region and Delta. There will also be a selection of photo essays from Soundings. Each photograph, or series, will be accompanied by short narratives telling the stories behind the images.

Rich Turner explored Antarctica as a Navy photographer, was a newspaper photojournalist for 19 years (16 at Stockton Record), and self-employed since 1990. “Delta Grandeur,” his museum exhibit, is still touring California after visiting 7 venues, and in 2018 he launched Soundings, a digital magazine reporting on issues and history concerning and involving the people of the California Delta.

Image caption: “Rivers Run Through It.” This 2015 aerial view of the south-central Delta shows how, over many years of farming the rich peat soil, the land has subsided below sea level.
