Biographies are studies of someone's life based on cumulative research. Good ones may reveal something, but probably barely scratch the surface of what actually went on. The internet is allowing me to do something VERY different.

The Daze of My Life: Robert Glenn Ketchum, An Autobiography #94:
Daze, #94: The end of the 70’s is a VERY busy time for me, as you know if you follow this blog. The discovery and development of the Paul Outerbridge collection (posts #50 & #88), and the huge exhibit in cooperation with Security Pacific Bank (post #86), bring other opportunities and inspire curatorial projects of my own. I survive traveling around the world with Elisabeth Mann Borgese, researching and photographing aquaculture, and return to my studio in LA to do a massive edit of 2,200 images that need to go to Harry N. Abrams in New York. Galleries are selling my prints, keeping my master printer, Michael Wilder and me busy making them. I have also built a very nice B&W darkroom in my family home and have begun to print the images that will become the portfolio, “WINTERS: 1970-1980”. Occasionally, a distant winter trip gets planned to further those images, but much closer to home, I am spending time in “winter” by visiting my clients home in 3 Rivers and tour skiing amongst the groves and big trees of Sequoia National Park. Michael Wilder and I have become close friends, not only because we are working together, but he also enjoys the outdoors, backpacks, and cross-country skis. So, I bring Michael along on one of my visits to 3 Rivers because he is going to do a trans-Sierra, multi-day, winter camp and cross-country ski, and the planned route begins in Sequoia, which we intend to explore. I have not previously skied above the big tree groves, so when we reach this point, I am VERY impressed.
