St. John photographer focuses beyond the island

Bill Stelzer is a St. John photographer with an eye for more than sunsets and sandy beaches.

This month, he's mounted an exhibit of his wok at Bajo el Sol, a top flight gallery in Mongoose Junction.

Stelzer describes it as "a selection of digital artwork painted with light and computer algorithms from photographs around the planet."

A TV newsman in Texas, he moved to St. John almost 20 years ago.  In the mid-90s, he worked at his photography and expanded into video.  He also wrote local newspaper articles, made political ads, and worked with charitable groups like the Friends of the National Park and the Park Service.

He also got involved with Waveplace Foundation, part of the world-wide "One Laptop Per Child project." That took him to Haiti where he taught school children how to use their new devices, which led directly to him returning to there to help with relief efforts after its earthquake last year.

The St. John Source published a profile of Stelzer.
