Studio (for Tour only):
Experience work by local artist and photographer Ray Ketcham plus projects from a number of emerging visual artists being mentored by him. Individual photographs will be showcased as well as visual stories from around the world curated by Ray for Rear Curtain, the online and print magazine he established in 2011.
Stop by the studio to learn more about making images that matter—ones that will have an impact or be of lasting importance. Ray will be leading a discussion on iconic images that shaped photography and how they relate to the times that shaped them.

Ray Ketcham has a passion for human stories. Originally from the American Southwest, he has lived in the Pacific Northwest for the last thirty-five years where he first studied sculpture at the University of Western Washington and went on to show his work in New York and Seattle. Since he was a teenager, he has had a camera in hand and today he works as a commercial, freelance photographer. His clients include humanitarian and government organizations as well as local businesses. He also teaches and mentors new photographers, one-on-one and most recently through round tables held in the picturesque artist community of Port Townsend.
Ray is also the founder and editor-in-chief of “Rear Curtain” a website dedicated to emerging visual storytellers who want to share important—often untold—stories. Rear Curtain is also a resource of learning tools for those who wish to advance their storytelling skills.
Studio at 823 Water Street, Unit A is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
