New Projects & The Relevance of Social Media
"My primary focus will be an introduction to southwest Alaska, Bristol Bay, the Pebble mine, but I will show some other projects as well and I will show new digital imagery and applications, as well as discuss my use of social media to drive advocacy issue campaigns."
Over the last 45 years, Robert Glenn Ketchum’s imagery, writing, exhibitions, numerous books and personal activism have helped to define photography’s successful use in conservation advocacy.
