Our guest this morning is John Post.

John is a renowned photographer and anyone that has spent any time in the South Bay is familiar with his iconic images of the area.

He bought his first camera while he was in the US Army in Vietnam in 1967.

Upon his return to the states, he enrolled at El Camino College where he studied art and photography. After graduating, he took his first extended journey around the world, photographing as he went.

After losing his passport in Afghanistan, he was only allowed to move on to India, where he was stuck for 5 months before heading to Australia.

He ended up selling his camera to pay for a boat ticket to Perth where he worked for a mining company.

Saving every penny he earned, he returned to India and spent the next year photographing it.

He returned to the U.S. in 1975 and began taking sports pictures and doing art shows where he sold his exotic images of the Far East and India.

In 1980, he turned his camera on the South Bay and the rest, as they say, is history.
