Ralph A. Ledergerber uses photography as a media to document our world today. His photography is intended to evoke images of beauty, fascination and emotion to the conscious mind of the audience. To often we take the world for granted and photography is the perfect media to express and show the world from different angles. Today is tomorrow's past and has become history. He wants to show the present to a future audience. Ralph A. Ledergerber was born in 1961 in Switzerland and migrated to Adelaide Australia in 1991 where he now lives and works. Some of his work was exhibited at Circulo Bellas Artes, Calle Alcala 42, Sala Antonio Palacios, Madrid (Spain), at the Morpho Gallery in Chicago IL (USA) in June 2010 and at the annual SALA (South Australian Living Artists Festival) in Adelaide, South Australia in August 2010 themed 'Colours of Morocco' and is evidence of his international standing.
