Legal Planet is grateful to Robert Glenn Ketchum for the use of his spectacular imagery. We respect his ability to elegantly remind us all why we work to preserve the planet.
Robert Glenn Ketchum earned his B.A. cum laude from UCLA in 1970. Ketchum studied photography at UCLA with Edmund Teske and Robert Heinecken, then after graduation established a 40-year career in which he used his camera, exhibitions, writing and publications as tools for conservation advocacy and successful conservation media campaigns.
Audubon magazine named Ketchum as one of the 100 people “who shaped the environmental movement of the 20th Century,” then in the late ‘90’s American Photo magazine listed him one of the 100 most important people in contemporary photography.
For 15-years, Ketchum also served as served as the Curator of Photography for the National Park Foundation for whom he organized the exhibit and wrote “American Photographers and the National Parks” the defining history of conservation photography in North America.
