Local Legend and photographer John Kich recently joined Ann-Maree on our Monday Morning Forum. John talked about his passion for photographing all that is Orange, his contribution to Geoffrey Cartwright’s The Old Orange Crew Facebook page, the local music scene from the 60’s to now – Stomp City and the plans to bring it back to the Orange Function Centre November 2019.

John also spoke on his upbringing in Orange and why he loves O-Town so much! Since retiring from his job at Orange City Council, John spends his time helping and contributing to a number of other community organisations including the Orange Historical Society, Colour City Creatives, local businesses and promoting local musicians and events.

His photographs have been generously donated throughout our local communities, and he still plans to donate and help more for everyone’s enjoyment.

“These are just a few of the things that make JOHN KICH one of our most treasured, local legends!’ – Ann-Maree

    Well Done John. Nerves can get to you but it shows your only human. Keep up the good work.
