Overview

The Legacy of Wilderness: The Photographs of Robert Glenn Ketchum. Preface by Robert Redford; Essay by John Perlin. This is the first major retrospective of a worldrenowned landscape photographer whose artistry is equaled only by his commitment to the environment. 71 fourcolor and 28 blackandwhite photographs.

"Ketchum's view is not of the monumental prospect, but of the beauty of the ordinary. He always seems to be able to see both the forest and the trees: whether overlooking a vast expanse or standing in the middle of a dense wood, Ketchum manages to place his camera in the ideal spot and release his shutter when the light is most revealing. Certainly his aim is to make us aware of the dire consequences of logging, pollution. and mismanagement on the environment. But while his views of despoilation crop up here and there, he convinces us of the need for conservation of our natural resources mostly through his masterful work as a colorist."

Stephen Perloff, Photo Review

"A breathtaking look at nature through the eyes of one of the best photographers in the business."
