Iโ€™m glad I found this website! Johnโ€™s photography has always been inspiration to me and is one of the reasons I got into this crazy business!
I was at the National Museum of African American History last week and of course I visited the statues from the 1968 Olympics exhibit. Taken from one of Johnโ€™s most iconic images, itโ€™s a must see for anyone who visits the museums in DC!

Dear Stu,

Iโ€™m so glad to know that John was an inspiration in your photographic life and how much you value his iconic image, "Power Salute.โ€ Your recommendation to visit the Washington D.C. National Museum of African American History and see the sculpture taken from Johnโ€™s image sounds like a perfect trip, especially during Black History Month.

Thank you for your kind words in memory of John.
