Sexton is best known for his luminous hand crafted traditional silver gelatin black and white photographs of the natural environment.

Sexton served as Photographic Assistant and Technical Consultant to photographer Ansel Adams from 1979 to 1984.

John still finds magic in exposing and processing film, and making silver gelatin prints, by hand, in his traditional darkroom at his home and studio in Carmel Valley, California.
