Richard Halliburton is Emeritus Professor of Biology at Western Connecticut State University where he taught and conducted research in genetics, evolutionary biology, and related subjects. He is author of Introduction to Population Genetics, a leading textbook in the field. Halliburton has photographed the western landscape and national parks, especially Yellowstone, since the 1960s. Since retiring, he spends most of his time on photography, wandering in search of truth in black and white. His favorite camera is still a folding wooden view camera little changed from those of the nineteenth century. Only recently has he been dragged, initially kicking and screaming, into the digital age. Halliburton currently lives in a small town in the Central Valley of California. His photographs have been exhibited and published in a variety of venues.

Halliburton has no relationship to the infamous company of the same name, but he is related to the bestselling adventurer and travel writer of the 1930s.



Artist's Statement:

“We all write too much, speak too much, preach too much. It would be better if we just said what we have to say in photography.”
