Huntington Witherill (1949 -) moved with his family to California, in 1953, where he began training in classical music. With intentions of eventually becoming a concert pianist, Witherill entered college as a music major in 1968, but soon became interested in the study of two-dimensional design. This shift in creative focus eventually led to a career in fine art photography beginning in 1970.
Having studied photography in the early 1970's with such notables as Ansel Adams, Wynn Bullock, Steve Crouch and Al Weber, Witherill has remained faithful to his classical roots while progressively transitioning toward a more contemporary approach to the medium. Since 1975, his work has been featured in more than one-hundred individual and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the world.
