Welcome to Hotel California: Some Pictures from My Backyard by Robert Glenn Ketchum

Welcome To Hotel California:  Some Pictures From My Backyard
by Robert Glenn Ketchum


I was born, and grew up in Los Angeles. As my professional career developed, I traveled around the world working on various commissions, but seldom had opportunities to work in California. Nonetheless, I always came back “home,” and when there, I occasionally took pictures. For ten years I also taught a photography workshop on the Mendocino coast that provided some great visual moments as well. There is no “project” unifying these images, they are just my way of showing, “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.”

The North Pole: Sitting on Top of the World by Robert Glenn Ketchum

 The North Pole:  Sitting on Top of the World

by Robert Glenn Ketchum




In 1998, and again in 2002, I had the opportunity to visit The North Pole, Franz Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya, and Yuzhny. Both times the journey was made possible aboard a nuclear Russian ice-breaker. These were unusual voyages into a strange-beautiful landscape, like no other on the planet, so hop aboard, and I will take you to some places you might not ever see otherwise.

The North Pole: Sitting on Top of the World, #1
North Pole #1:  
In July of 1998, I was invited by my alma mater, UCLA, to participate as a guest lecturer on an alumni expedition to the North Pole, aboard the Soviet nuclear powered ice-breaker, Sovetskiy Soyuz. I would fly from Los Angeles to the Russian city of Murmansk, one of the northernmost ports of the country, and there I would join other alumni members, and board the icebreaker. Upon arrival, our luggage was taken from the airport to the ship, and we were taken by a bus for a visit around the city. Murmansk is an unusual place because it is home to a great part of the Russian fleet, and so we were told that during our tour, we were not allowed to take any photographs. I also knew that when their nuclear submarines aged, they brought them to the harbor in Murmansk and sank them, to keep them from melting down. (You don’t want to be eating any locally caught fish!) After the tour about the city, we were taken to the icebreaker, assigned our rooms, and told to pull the shades down on our windows, until the ship had left the port. I was determined, nonetheless, to have at least one picture of Murmansk, so in the light of late evening, I lifted the cover of my porthole wide enough to stick my lens against the glass, and took this.

Weekly Post, THE SONORAN DESERT: Visiting with Don Juan by Robert Glenn Ketchum

THE SONORAN DESERT:  
Visiting with Don Juan
by Robert Glenn Ketchum



In 1988, I was contacted by Luther Propst, Director of the Rincon Institute of Tucson, AZ, who asked me if I could help them devise a campaign to protect a part of Saguaro National Monument from a massive real estate development that would disrupt substantial habitat.  I did so, and we not only succeeded in mitigating the development, we added 30,000 acres to the monument, and got it upgraded to National Park status.  While doing this work, I fell in love with the Sonoran Desert, returning to it repeatedly, and visiting the many varied parts of it in Arizona, Mexico, and Baja, CA.  This is the tale of those visits.

THE SONORAN DESERT:  Visiting with Don Juan #79 
Sonora #79:
As our convoy approaches, El Elegante crater, the setting sun has triggered a maximum glow effect, and that light is beginning to illuminate the crater's vertical walls. The scudding clouds that have been overhead all day, are now sending dancing cloudshadows across the distant Pinacate Mountains, and in the cooler, crystal clear air of the oncoming evening, the entire expanse of this desert reserve seems to be moving, and breathing. Don Juan is clearly here,.. somewhere.

 GETTING LOOPY:  Cruising One of North America’s Greatest Driving Loops 

by Robert Glenn Ketchum

One of the greatest camping and hiking circuits to drive in the entire country, starts from my home in Los Angeles, passes through Nevada, into Utah, and on to Arizona, before heading back to LA. Along the way you can visit 3 state parks, 6 national parks, 1 national monument, and 1 national recreation area. If you wanted to put in some extra miles, you could add another national park, 2 more national monuments, and 2 more national recreation areas. I will call out the latter as we pass them, but my images will introduce you to all of the former. Come take a drive with me!

Weekly Post, NO PEBBLE MINE Pictures From Ground Zero by Robert Glenn Ketchum (Posts #426+)

 NO PEBBLE MINE Pictures From Ground Zero by Robert Glenn Ketchum


Since 1998, I have been working to protect southeast Alaska, and the fishery of Bristol Bay. The fishery is an annually renewable, BILLION-dollar-a-year industry that employs thousands and thousands of workers in multiple states. 2021 provided the largest commercial salmon catch in history (64-million+). There is no intelligent reason to allow the proposed development of the Pebble mine to go forward and imperil these resources. The United Tribes of Bristol Bay, the United Fishermen of Alaska, Trout Unlimited, Trustees For Alaska, and the Natural Resources Defense Council, all oppose the development. Even Alaskan Senator, Lisa Murkowski, has stated her opposition. The momentum is building. Now is the time to SAY NO TO THE PEBBLE MINE permanently!

NO PEBBLE MINE, Pictures from Ground Zero #475
NO PEBBLE MINE #475: 
Katmai is a world of mountains, and water, water everywhere. There are many rivers, some VERY big lakes, and, as you can see here, quite a display of pothole lakes as well. Fish and bear abound, and except for trails around Brooks Camp, and in the Valley of 10,000 Smokes, nothing is approachable unless you fly in. This is wilderness in its most undisturbed state.

Weekly Post: THE TONGASS: Stop the Cut, There are Salmon in the Trees (#100+) by Robert Glenn Ketchum

THE TONGASS:  Stop the Cut, There are Salmon in the Trees
by Robert Glenn Ketchum


In 1985, I began a 2-year commission to explore the Tongass rainforest, the largest forest in the United States Forest Service (USFS) system AND the largest temperate rainforest in the world. It was a unique, old-growth environment under siege from industrial logging. The resulting investigative book I published helped to pass the Tongass Timber Reform Bill, protect 1,000,000 acres of old-growth, and create 11 new wilderness areas. This is the story of how that was achieved.

THE TONGASS:  Stop the Cut, There are Salmon in the Trees, #269
Tongass, #269:  
Bart, and Julie Koehler, Carey, and I, are joined in the small restaurant that was part of the village of Pelican, by several “friends” of the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council (SEACC) for whom Bart and Julie work. Several village residents, and one personnel of the US Forest Service, eat with us also while we discuss the USFS plans to log part of the Lisianski Inlet old growth. The residents are uniformly opposed to the plan, and the USFS employee said he thinks the cut is a waste of tax dollars as there will be no profit to the Treasury from the logging. Around midday, and a few beers into the afternoon, our host arrives at the dock with his skiff to transport Bart, Julie, Carey, and I, to his residence farther down into the fjord. Earl is accompanied by his dog, Huggy, whom he claims is the best bear dog in southeast, Alaska. As you can see (above), Huggy, is quite small, so when I ask if he is joking about the dog, Earl says that Huggy does not engage with bears, he just smells them long before they can be seen, and his frenzied barking assures Earl that they are nearby.

Weekly Post, High and Wild: Three Years of Wandering in the Wind Rivers (#101+)

High and Wild: Three Years of Wandering in the Wind Rivers
by Robert Glenn Ketchum



After receiving my MFA from CalArts, I was invited by Bill Lund, Sharon Disney’s husband, to come stay at the families' Diamond-D Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming. Bill thought I might like to photograph in the nearby Wind River Mountains, which I did, backpacking through them extensively over the next three summers. Welcome to a world of big granite walls and huge alpine lakes!

High and Wild:  Three Years of Wandering in the Wind Rivers, #218 
Wind Rivers, #218:  
My 3yrs. of long summers backpacking in the Wind River Range of Wyoming, (detailed by this blog) left me with a profound love of wilderness, mountains, and high altitude adventuring. My ensuing career took me to a LOT of adventurous places, but none of them stuck in my mind like the Wind Rivers, and yet, I was so busy, I never got back to hike in the range again. Life seemed to fly by, filled with many successful projects, exhibitions, and books. Then I married for a second time, and did something I never thought I would do,..have children. When I was 48yrs. old, Travis Gaard Ketchum was born. In his first 8yrs., my wife and I took him, and our daughter, born 4yrs. later, camping many times, but always to places that were campgrounds with facilities. When Travis turned 8yrs. old, and I, 56, I decided he should have a high altitude, wilderness experience, and I should see the Wind Rivers one more time before I got too old. My wife trusted my judgement, I hooked up with another dad who had a son of the same age, and instead of backpacking, we rented llamas to carry the weight. We four, and our four llamas, drove to the 9,000ft.+ trailhead at Elkhart Park, and began our walk in. The other dad and son could only stay 4 days, so we “adjusted" to the altitude, and never went above 9,500ft. When my friend and his son left, Travis was apprehensive, and wanted to go as well, but I told him we had come a long way, and we were fully prepare for ten-days, so I thought we ought to stay. That night, while sitting on a rock watching a GREAT sunset, a “magical” elk came into our meadow quite near us, and, then and there, Travis made up his mind to go for it. The next day we took our two llamas to a small, high lake called, Tommy, at 10,500ft. We had a great campsite immediately adjacent an 11,600ft summit, which we climbed the next day. It took me two years to summit in the Winds. My 8yr.-old son did so on his fifth day. After the climb, standing in our camp, I took this picture of Travis, with the summit behind him, so he might always remember his youthful accomplishment.

Weekly Post, GREENLAND, LABRADOR, and BAFFIN ISLAND: A Climate Change Research Expedition in the North Atlantic

GREENLAND, LABRADOR, and BAFFIN ISLAND:  A Climate Change Research Expedition in the North Atlantic by Robert Glenn Ketchum


 
In 2006, I was invited to participate in a Zegrahm expedition sponsored by the Harvard Museum of Natural History, The Nature Conservancy, and the World Wildlife Fund. I was to lecture aboard the ship, and to participate onshore, when visiting Inuit communities to discuss the effects of climate change on their lives. The trip would travel along the coast of southeastern Greenland, crossing the Labrador Sea, to the northwest coast of Labrador, and the southwest coast of Baffin Island.

GREENLAND, LABRADOR, and BAFFIN ISLAND:  A Climate Change Research Expedition in the North Atlantic, #54
GLB #54:  
As I watched the night draw slowly down, some large, but distant, icebergs drifted across the horizon, as the sky grew darker, but no less colorful. With the sun now well below the horizon, the lower elevation clouds lost their illumination, and became morphous gray shapes, drifting beneath a very high cloud cover, that was luminously aglow. I was not even sure if my film could record such minimal light, but apparently (above), things worked out. Thank you Velvia! About midnight, it was fade to black, so I returned my cabin, and zoned out. We had been told tomorrow would start with an early breakfast, and then we were to go ashore and explore Shuldham Island, a location with a very unique history.

Weekly Post, SUNDANCE: Artist-In-Residence by Robert Glenn Ketchum (#101+)

SUNDANCE:  Artist In Residence
by Robert Glenn Ketchum



From 1987-1989, Robert Redford invited me to become the first visual Artist-In-Residence at his newly established Sundance Institute, part of the community he was building around his recently purchased ski resort in Utah. The residency provided me with subject matter that produced some of the most significant images of my career, but importantly, it also afforded me my first aerial work, a platform that would become increasingly important throughout my life. A limited amount of these images were ever published, and NONE of the aerials ever were. The best will now appear, please enjoy!  ~Robert Glenn Ketchum

Sundance is an amazing resort, a dramatic environment, and a brilliant idea. I am grateful to have been able to participate, and contribute as a visual artist, in the Artist-In-Residence program. I would like to thank all the staff that made me welcome, especially, Brent Beck, who went out of his way to provide me with access, and promote the work I created; the members of the ski patrol that periodically guided me; the gracious staff of the dining room that fed me every night; and last, but certainly not least, my friend, Robert Redford, who took an interest in my work, and gave me this incredible opportunity. Thank you all SO much!

After a day of snow at Sundance, a high wind followed, and began whipping everything around. The wind finally died down after the sun set, and in the shade of twilight I found this wind sculpture alongside the road to Robert Redford’s ranch house.

It snowed all day, but the storm was followed by a high wind that pretty much blew all the fresh powder away. When the weather around Mt. Timpanagos gets cranked up, it can be fierce. Blowing at 60mph as the sun sets.

In post #125, I presented “Sun Dance,” the most successful edition of prints of any of the Sundance imagery. It sold out in the first 30-days after issue, and all in the 30”x 40” size. Above is “Cosmic Trees,” the second most popular print published in the series. It did not sell out as quickly, and I did print it in some smaller sizes, but all those prints are long gone now. Glad you get to see it here.
