In Defense of the Natural World by Robert Glenn Ketchum, January 3, 2011

In Defense of the Natural World 
by Robert Glenn Ketchum, Founding Fellow, International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP), January 3, 2011

Robert Glenn Ketchum is a world-renowned conservation photographer, a United Nations’ Outstanding Environmental Achievement Award winner, one of Audubon’s 100 people who “shaped the environmental movement in the 20th Century” and the first visual artist in residence at Sundance. As of 2010, Ketchum became No. 5 in American Photo magazine’s Master Series. According to American Photo, “He is not a household name, even in genteel households familiar with photography’s luminaries. He wouldn’t be counted in the firmament of Richard Avedon, Annie Liebovitz, Henri Cartier-Bresson or Helmut Newton, the subjects of American Photo’s prior Master Series issues. Robert Glenn Ketchum, a champion of the modern environmental movement for more than 30 years, may well be the most influential photographer you’ve never heard of.”
