KENDALL PARK, NJ, November 10, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Duncan Hartley has excelled in the field of fine art photography for 60 years, having been influenced by a family dedicated to the arts. His mother attended art school and later opened her own art gallery, while his father was a poet and Thoreau scholar. Hartley was recruited into professional photography in the eighth grade, and within two years began a lifetime commitment to fine art photography. New York City was the subject of 60 years of his work, and another portfolio is a revealing exploration of the differences between two revolutionary-period towns in Massachusetts: Concord and Ipswich.

The teaching hospitals for the medical school were the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals of Cleveland. He was then recruited to a newly created position of Sr. Philanthropic Advisor of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, with an office in Florida. In all, Dr. Hartley served for 25 years as a philanthropic fund raiser for cancer research and biomedical research. During this time, he had the privilege of working with eight Nobel Prize winners, and many of the nation's most brilliant doctors and scientists.
