    John Gutmann (1905-1998) was a German-born American photographer and painter. Gutmann's main subject matter was the American way of life, especially the Jazz music scene. He enjoyed taking photos of ordinary things and making them seem special. David Bonetti, art critic for the San Francisco Examiner, called Gutmann's output from the 1930s "his best, he experienced America as a bemused stranger in a strange land. Gutmann fell in love with Depression-era America, which he traveled by Greyhound Bus Line. He saw its cars, its rites and festival, its athletes, its women, its vibrant African American communities and its dynamic street life with European eyes."
