Guest photographer for the Photographic Nights of Selma 2020
A gifted storyteller, John Noltner has worked on four continents,
gathering stories of human courage, grace, and resilience. He has produced projects for national magazines, Fortune 500 companies, and non-profit organizations.
In 2009, he founded A Peace of My Mind, a multimedia arts project that uses portraits and personal stories to encourage dialogue around important issues. Through exhibits, workshops, lectures and on-site studios, A Peace of My Mind leads transformative experiences that help a polarized world rediscover the common humanity that connects us.
A Peace of My Mind reflects his belief that art and storytelling can help
individuals and organizations bridge divides and build community.
John lives 11.6 miles south of the intersection where George Floyd was
killed by police and in the days immediately afterward, he went to the
site with a basic studio kit and asked people there, “What do you want to say?”
