The beautiful floral photographs on JFS’s Tribute Cards are the work of former board member Dr. Mort Kousen.
As Mort saw it, he switched from delivering babies into the world to delivering special photos into the world.
A retired obstetrician and gynecologist who delivered thousands of babies in York and elsewhere, Mort began actively pursuing fine art photography in retirement. He believed the essence of each subject can be captured by using light, color, shapes, sharpness and blurring to communicate the beauty seen by the camera.
Photography, by the way, was not Kousen’s second career. It was his third. Before enrolling in the University of Maryland School of Medicine at age 30, he was an aerospace physiologist with the U.S. Air Force, holding a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy and a master’s in physiology.
He and his wife, Bonnie, lived in Springettsbury Township and have three grown children and five grandchildren.
