Peter Ralston

Juror for Maine Photography Show 2018

Peter Ralston grew up in Chadd's Ford, Pennsylvania, worked for a decade as a freelance photojournalist and then began photographing the coast of Maine in 1978, drawn especially to the working communities that define the coast's enduring character.

His work has been seen in many books and magazines, featured on network television and has been exhibited in galleries, collections and museums throughout the United States and abroad.

In 2003 he was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree at Colby College for his photography as well as his role as co-founder of the Island Institute.
