Cedric Wright,
Photographer Takes Up Pen

Berkeley Daily Gazette
March 27, 1952

 

Cedric Wright [is] a photographer of unusual experience, Wright started life as a violinist. He studied for six years in Parque and Vienna with Ottacar Sevick and later with Louis Persinger. He taught at Mills College and for the University of California Extension. Recently, because of arthritic fingers, Wright took up photography as a profession.

He says that he has no regrets for changing horses in the middle of the stream, because what he learned in music was more useful to photography than anything photography had to offer.

His "concertizing" as a photographer include one man shows at the art building of the Panama Pacific International Exposition and at the galleries of Stanford, Mills College, University of California, Pale Verdes and Santa Barbara. He has many prints in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His Chief pride is to have photographed for the Sierra Club on its summer outings.

This varied experience as an artist and especially his contact with the mountains led to the second change in his work. He is at present absorbed in writing a book in which he expresses his concerns over the modern education system. He thinks schools over-emphasize the memorizing of facts and frequently overlook the importance of training for original and creative living and better international understanding.
