About the Artist:
Ward Thompson has been a member of the AIA for over 40 years and has enjoyed photography for over 50 years.  He incorporated his photography into his work, which found him and wife Judy living in several foreign countries over the years.  His photos have appeared in a number of books and journals as well as in many American Institute of Architects calendars, including winning their Louise Bethune Award in 2001.  

His work abroad and extensive travel have provided endless sources of photographic subject matter.  The photographs in this exhibition span between Berlin in 1964 and Los Angeles in 2014 including images from each decade in between.    

Ward retired in 2012 and has realized his goal for retirement: to operate an architectural tour business in Los Angeles and Southern California.  His photos of many iconic architectural landmarks are featured on his web page – www.entasistours.com.
