About this title

Synopsis:

The Legacy of Wildness: The Photographs of Robert Glenn Ketchum is the first major retrospective of a world-renowned landscape photographer whose artistry is equaled only by his commitment to the environment.

To activist photographer Robert Glenn Ketchum, art and advocacy go hand in hand. Whether depicting the rugged grandeur of the American countryside or the mournful beauty of virgin wilderness violated by progress, his landscapes reject sentimentality. Instead, they document his deep respect and compassion for our irreplaceable natural resources.

With a preface by Robert Redford and an essay by distinguished ecologist and author John Perlin, The Legacy of Wildness is a work of great innovation and integrity.

Review:

"Robert Glenn Ketchum's photography affirms his extraordinary awareness of the beauty and design of the natural world. I have come to realize the sense of space and depth in his photographs, and the ways that living things reach into the flesh or air and water and earth, like the tendrils of veins and nerves in our bodies. His photographs create a powerful sense of the pervasive aliveness of earth, and they immerse the viewer in that life; they bring on a sense of our own enjoyment in the world; they breathe."--Richard Nelson, cultural anthropolist and author
