The lecture is part of a three-part series with leading authorities on Alaska and the environment. As President, Jimmy Carter helped establish National Parks in Alaska, and Ketchum will be speaking about these places, as well as his work as a photographer of wild spaces. 39 large-format photographs of Ketchum's are currently hanging at the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum. Please read more about that exhibit on the Carter Library site. That show will be up until April 13th. Ketchum's lecture next Thursday compliments his show opening Jan. 25th at Lumiere Gallery, called "Nature's Palette". In addition to photographs, Ketchum will be showing silk Chinese embroidery from the Suzhou Embroidery Research Institute in Suzhou, China.
