Saul Alexander Gallery at Main Library -  Charleston photographer John Galgano was diagnosed with cancer, but refuses to let that stop him and his passion for photography. He hopes to inspire people who face adversity to continue living their lives to the fullest. John was given his first 35 mm camera in the early ‘70s by his photography class teacher. After four years, that same teacher paid for John to take evening college photography courses. John received a scholarship, but he lost contact with his teacher shortly thereafter. John set out later in life to find and properly thank that teacher, only to learn he had passed away. To thank and pay forward what his teacher did for him, John opened a photography school in Freeport, Maine that was free to all children. He had to close the school after two years, and then he moved to Charleston.
