"Sexton’s artistry illuminates the idea that within humanity’s dreams and intellect there exists a divine spark."
— Walter Cronkite, from his Foreword to PLACES OF POWER
"I have rarely seen such beautiful images of industry – including the landmark work of Alfred Stieglitz, Lewis Hine and Walker Evans. The images are so beautifully printed that they seem to leap from the page – and Sexton's description of how he achieves such luminosity is worth the book's asking prices all by itself."
— Frank Van Riper, The Washington Post
"The images in Sexton's PLACES OF POWER are rich and evocative. Immense detail is presented with a precision rarely seen in contemporary art photography. His expressive sensibility celebrates the energy and mystique of these places. All of the information is there, but the mystery remains. These are truly wonderful photographs!"
— Jerry N. Uelsmann, Photographer
"What John Sexton understands is that there is beauty in human invention, whether it is a cliff dwelling or a Space Shuttle. The power of these photographs is that they capture the magnificent spirit with which human beings have met the challenges of existence -- on this Earth, and beyond it"
— Andrew Chaikin, author of "A Man on the Moon"
"In PLACES OF POWER John Sexton takes you on a journey trough human creations which help define people’s desire to understand and shape their world."
— Hugh W. Harris
Retired Director of Public Affairs,
