John P. Carroll—J.P. Carroll Auto Parts proprietor
If you were trapped in a foxhole surrounded by the enemy, Johnny would be one of my first choices to share the foxhole. Honest and forthright, he’s going to tell you what you need to know, whether you want to hear it or not. An extremely successful businessman, his acts of philanthropy within the Lexington community are legendary, if only because of his refusal to publically acknowledge his many acts of generosity. He’s a real gentleman, and I was humbled and honored to photograph him.
