John Noltner is an American photographer and a peace activist. Since 2009, he has been asking people the simple (or not so simple) question, “What does peace mean to you?” for his multimedia art project, A Peace of My Mind. The project combines photographs of diverse subjects and their personal stories exploring the meaning of peace. He has included the voices of Holocaust survivors, homeless individuals, political refugees and others. The project has been presented at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, the Peace and Justice Studies Association, the Sojourners Summit for Change and the Dayton International Peace Museum. The project represents John’s belief that art and storytelling have the power to transform our hearts as well as our communities. His work has appeared in National Geographic Traveler, Forbes Magazine, Health, Smithsonian, Business Week and The New York Daily News.
