The Loss of a Giant in The Photo Community and of a Good Friend

George Pitts was a person I have the honor and privilege to have called my friend. He was more than that. He was a mentor, educator, poet, writer and most of all an artist of deep commitment. 


George Pitts passed away on March 4, 2017, after battling a longterm illness.

A prolific figure in the photography world, Pitts wore multiple hats to the many people he knew: photo director, photographer, painter, educator, writer and friend. His drawings and paintings have been exhibited around the world, while his writing and photography has appeared in numerous publications, including the New York Times MagazineVice and The Paris Review."

Thank you for all your great conversations and wisdom my friend. You will be truly missed.
