Bob Soltys (1955, USA). In 1971, Bob took his camera along with seniors who walked out to protest a teachers’ strike that would have cut short their school year and prevented them from graduating. The weekly paper bought the pictures, launching a 40-year career capturing people and events on film.
His photos have appeared in newspapers, Midwest Flyer, and Sports Illustrated and have been exhibited at the Beverly Arts Center in Chicago, the Rangefinder Gallery, and other galleries. Bob’s fine art prints have raised funds for many charities including the Friends of Anton auction.
