“Arctic Observations”-Photographer Peter Ralston on Zoom through York Public Library
January 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
The Camden Conference and the York Public Library present Peter Ralston on Wednesday, January 6 at 7pm via Zoom. Ralston will be sharing photographs and stories from the West Coast of Greenland and the Northwest Passage, featuring the landscape and wildlife of the Arctic and the people who live there.
Peter Ralston grew up in Chadd’s Ford, Pennsylvania, worked for a decade as a freelance photojournalist and then began photographing the coast of Maine in 1978, drawn especially to the working communities that define the coast’s enduring character.
His work has been seen in many books and magazines, featured on network television and has been exhibited in galleries, collections and museums throughout the United States and abroad.
In 2003 he was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree at Colby College for his photography as well as his role as co-founder of the Island Institute in 1983.
He opened Ralston Gallery in Rockport, Maine, in 2011, selling his photographs as well as the work of his lifelong friends, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. He is currently working on a book about coastal Maine.
