Jack Welpott is perhaps the leader of a generation of fine art photographers that had been traditionally passed over by mainstream collectors. Mr. Welpott says without photography he would have wound up selling insurance in Indiana. Instead he has used the camera to open his mind as well as others to a different way of seeing. He recommends marrying rich in order to support your art. Mr. Welpott passed away November 24, 2007 at the age of 84. He lived and worked in Inverness Calif.
