Since retiring from a career in government relations, Afton resident John Kaul has devoted himself to photography & filmmaking. His films include “Madeline Island and the Art of the String Quartet,” “Rebirth — The Mississippi’s National Park” in partnership with Friends of the Mississippi River, and “The Wild and Scenic St. Croix” in partnership with the St. Croix River Association and TPT.

Kaul is known for his Henri Cartier Bresson inspired “in the moment” street photography & portraiture. He has amassed a fascinating portfolio of candid & revealing portraits featuring people from all walks of life. His work is frequently displayed in the Twin Cities and includes the past exhibits “Interesting People I Have Known” at Norway House and “Indigenous Women Water Protectors” at several locations. Kaul’s “Philately Meets Portraiture” exhibit was recently held at the Groveland Gallery in Minneapolis & is currently at the Livingston Center for Art and Culture in Montana. “Heroes in our Time” is forthcoming.
