EDWARDS — Colorado Mountain College's Women in Philanthropy will present "Colorado Fourteeners: A Multimedia Presentation" featuring the work of CMC faculty member Derek Johnston on Wednesday, Jan. 31.

A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m., followed by the presentation at 6 p.m., in the atrium at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards. An exhibit of Johnston's photography is currently featured on campus. The reception and presentation are free and open to the public, and are supported by both Women in Philanthropy and the CMC ArtShare program.

Traditional Processes

Johnston has spent more than 20 years climbing and photographing all 54 of Colorado's 14,000-foot peaks from high-altitude vantage points.

Johnston matured as a photographer in the age of film, and he still uses traditional photographic processes on certain portfolios. In this particular project, he photographed Colorado's highest peaks primarily with a 4-by-5 view camera and black-and-white film.

Johnston is the director of professional photography at the Isaacson School for Communication, Arts and Media at Colorado Mountain College and is a member of the Society for Photographic Education and the American Society for Media Photographers.
