Retired from a long career as a Professor of English Language and Literature, Warren Westcott has discovered that he has ample time to devote to his other passion—photography. He inherited a small, manual Agfa camera from an older cousin at about age 13 and has been making images ever since. As an adult, he has accumulated images of places and things that he feels are somehow beautiful or unique, including plants and animals in his backyard and travel pictures from across this country and abroad. For several years, he served as volunteer event photographer for Christ Church Cathedral (Episcopal) in Nashville, and he served as the event photographer for the Aiken (S.C.) Artist Guild. In recent years, he has received an Honorable Mention and a second place in photography award at the Aiken Artist Guild’s Member Show, and he was one of ten finalists in a benefit show sponsored by the City of Aiken. His photograph “Stairway to Heaven” was selected as a Curator’s Choice at the Litha Moon Gallery in 2016.
