About the Photographer
Ralph H. Sidway has been practicing landscape photography since the early 1970s, working in both 35mm and medium format, and expanding into large format in 1990. His gelatin-silver prints have been accepted into and won awards at juried exhibits across Kentucky and Southern Indiana, and from the Southeast to the Midwest. An avid freelancer, Ralph's work has also included architecture and the performing arts. Several of his images were included in the coffee table book, Louisville, A River Serenade (Tower Publishing, 1996; Dan Dry, Photography Editor), and he created a memorable series of cover photos for Louisville Music News from 1995 to 2001. In the 2000s, Ralph returned to his first love, landscape photography, creating a compelling body of new images using the digital medium. 'Pursuing The Light' presents a retrospective of Ralph Sidway's work in landscape photography over the last four decades.
