A collection of approximately 14,000 slides taken by photographer Philip Hugh Stanton at international cultural festivals
in Southern California, landmarks in Greece and China, scenery of clouds, sunsets and the moon, college gymnasts and of models
participating in the Los Angeles Photo Club. The slides date from 1978 to 1993.
Philip Stanton was born in 1940 and worked as an engineer for Douglas Aircraft and Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In 1977, at
the age of 37, he studied photography at the Otis Art Institute and began taking pictures as a hobby. Despite his skill and
professional equipment, he never worked as a contract photographer, nor sold any of his work, but would occasionally project
his slides for friends and family. His interest in cultural festivals is the focus of his work, and chose subjects that allowed
him to creatively work with color, such as the colorful costumes and adornments worn by the performers, dramatic sunsets,
and deep blue oceans.
