John Burch was raised in Massachusetts but has lived in Idaho since the 1970s. For many years he practiced black-and-white photography using a large-format camera, but as technology matured, he transitioned to digital capture and processing. He was introduced to the art at the University of Rochester in New York and has maintained his passion throughout his career as a microbiologist at a medical center in Boise. Idaho's varied landscapes have offered John endless opportunities, and his photographs have been exhibited in the Boise Art Museum Triennials. John lives in Boise with his wife.
