Robert Glenn Ketchum & Eliot Porter: On Seeing Color

Booth Museum, Cartersville Georgia
March 7 – July 26, 2020

Robert Glenn Ketchum is one of America’s foremost conservation photographers, working to protect wilderness from development with landmark books “The Tongass: Alaska’s Vanishing Rain Forest”, numerous exhibits, and his leadership in the International League of Conservation Photographers. 

This upcoming exhibit explores the influence Elliot Porter’s work had on Ketchum, with an in depth display of Ketchum’s work through the years.

Of special note to my photographer friends is the planned panel discussion on March 7th. Ketchum has worked in most of the major color mediums of the 20th and 21st century, from Dye Transfer, Cibachrome, Fujicolor prints, Metal, and Inkjet, fighting through the technical challenges of each medium to convey his vision. Part of the panel discussion will be sharing those experiences. 

I’ll be posting more details about this show soon. I am planning on attending the opening, and look forward to seeing so much or Ketchum’s work in the magnificent setting of the Booth Museum. The show includes several large format Fuji Prints that I and my team at West Coast Imaging made for Ketchum that I have never seen in their final framed state. Hope to see you there!
