The exhibition – Wild Vision – opens on Friday in Loughborough Town Hall's Sock Gallery and runs until March 2.
It will feature photographs taken during John's travels to some of the most remote and beautiful places in the world, ranging from the Greenland Ice cap to Easter Island, in the South Pacific.
