S: Travels with My Camera by Joseph Routon

1: A native of Paris, Tennessee, Joseph Routon Jr lives and paints oil portraits professionally in Haddonfield, New Jersey, a suburb of Philadelphia. He began his studies in art with his father and continued at Murray State University with Dr. Clara Eagle. He studied portraiture in New York City at the Art Students League and at the National Academy of Design, where he was awarded the Ralph Weiler Prize. He was elected to artist membership in the Salmagundi Club in NYC. His art teachers in NYC were John Howard Sanden, David Leffel, Paul Burns, and Harvey Dinnerstein. In Philadelphia, he studied sculpture with Evangelos Frudakis. Additional study in Philadelphia was with Arthur DeCosta at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he served on the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Fellowship and was editor of the Academy's alumni magazine. He helped pay his way through art school in NYC as a newspaper photographer for the Advertiser Photo News in Warwick, NY. His photographs have appeared on the cover of Budget Travel Magazine, in the Travel section of the Philadelphia Inquirer, in advertising for the Travel Division of the Smithsonian Institution, in Sherman's Travel Magazine, and in the United Nations' publication, The InterDependent. In 1990, he founded a non-profit organization that assists, supports, and ministers to families of children in South Jersey who are living with AIDS. In February 2012, he traveled to Ometepec, Mexico, with the World Cataract Foundation to photograph and document their great work. An article that he wrote about the experience was published in the June 2012 issue of Shutterbug Photography Magazine. In 2013, an exhibition of his pictures of children whom he had photographed in India was presented at the Western Justice Center in Pasadena, California. In 2014, the Dixie Carter Performing Arts Center in Huntingdon, Tennessee, exhibited pictures of ballerinas photographed by him, and The Heritage Center in his hometown, Paris, presented an exhibition of his travel photographs in 2015. His wife, Joyce Ann, is a retired church organist. They began their travels abroad in 1989, the year after Joe and their son, Joey, traveled to Yugoslavia and Greece as members of the Philadelphia Boys Choir and Chorale. Joyce Ann has planned most of their trips, but they have also traveled with Overseas Adventure Travel and Grand Circle Cruises. They have been to over 50 countries around the world. In addition to his training in art, he has the Bachelor of Music and Master of Sacred Music degrees. Joyce Ann has the Bachelor of Music in organ and piano performance from Murray State University, where she studied organ with John Winter. Her further study was in NYC with Dr. John Weaver, chairman of the organ departments at Juilliard and at The Curtis Institute of Music. They have led churches' music programs in Tennessee, Kentucky, New Mexico, New Jersey, and New York. Joe is the grandson of Pearl Sanders (Miss Pearl) Routon, a well-known portrait painter in Tennessee, and Stephen James Routon Sr, a State Senator, and Rev. and Mrs. E. B. Rucker. His parents were Virginia Rucker Routon and Joe Routon Sr, an artist and musician. Joe is the oldest of seven children. His siblings are Bob, Ed, Amy, Boogle, Velma, and Phil. Joyce Ann is the daughter of Malcolm and Katherine Bailey from Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Joe and Joyce Ann have three children, Carol, Susan, and Joey, and seven grandsons. © 2016 All Rights Reserved 1212 Copley Place South, Haddonfield, NJ 08033 -- 856-547-3767 -- joe.routon@mac.com www.josephroutonportraits.com
