Robert Glenn Ketchum:
An Evolving Perspective of Nature
August 24 - September 19, 2009
Often compared to Ansel Adams
and Elliott Porter, Ketchum is known
for his large, meticulous photographs that often stand
as testament to our endangered environment.
After graduating from UCLA, and experiencing an epiphany in the California
Redwoods, Mr. Ketchum began focusing exclusively on landscape photography.
Soon he was doing work for the Sierra Club and eventually became the Curator
of Photography at the National Park Foundation. It was during this time that
he realized a bond was developing between him and the environment. "I
decided that maybe there was some way, within the work, to speak out on
behalf of the land or to make the work serve it," said Ketchum.
