Mentored by the artistry of Eliot Porter, Galen Rowell and David Muench. Ed Riche's thirty year career has been dedicated to achieving artistic expression through the lens of still cameras. He has pursued his goals primarily through his in-depth assignments. At the same time, he has maintained a career as an artist and workshop instructor.
The balance of Ed Riche's photography comes from close contact with nature and the landscape. To emphasize his commitment to what actually exists, he has chosen to work in color. He explores ways in which natural history can be recorded, with images shaped by light, shadow, form and texture in an untouched environment. In addition, he has maintained a personal library of National Park pictorials.
