John Fillion has travelled the world and has carried his Nikon D500 and other cameras to nearly all the National Parks, as well as China, Peru, Ecuador, Croatia and the Galapagos Islands. But it will be his photos of the Total Eclipse of the Sun 2017 which will grace the Great Hall through November 12. He and his wife, Barbara, headed to Cerulean Kentucky, located just 1000 feet from NASA’s designated “point of maximum eclipse” to photograph the historic event. His photos were taken every five minutes providing excellent results. John has created a composite of several shots which quickly became popular with family and friends. The composite and several photos of significant stages of the eclipse will be on display. Several framed prints will be available for purchase. In addition, some un-matted and unframed photos may be ordered. All proceeds support Heritage.
Fillion, however, is not a professional photographer but is a person with many interests. He enjoys backpacking and helping with Habitat Shalom. A strong believer in giving to others, he tutors and mentors students at Rothenberg Elementary School. He also volunteers as an AARP tax preparer in Butler and Warren Counties. He is now retired from P&G, having been on the Oral Care Team to China and the Pringles Team in the US. John and Barbara recently built a log home in Adams County and are members of the Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church.
