“I believe in the primacy of seeing. Seeing what is, and what may be.
Seeing through time, as it passes, becoming.
Mountains, clouds streaming, as butterfly dreams.” Ray Belcher
Ray Belcher arrived in Santa Fe from California in the mid 1970s, after having received a National Endowment for the Arts grant.
“When I got here in 1976, there were only about 20 people who identified themselves as photographers, including Ernest Knee, Eliot Porter, Beaumont Newhall, Paul Caponigro, etc.”
Ray is one of the few photographers today who still utilizes the black and white silver gelatin printing process. Images of cloud formations; Landscapes, crosses and cemeteries and lightning in Galisteo, NM; Numerous vast landscapes of California and New Mexico; Buildings in San Francisco; The Silverado movie set… all created with a mastery of his craft.
“Photography is a training for seeing… the picture reflects a moment of being and what happens in that moment.” R. Belcher
The fine art photography of Ray Belcher can be seen in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Albuquerque, the New Mexico Museum of Fine Arts, the Santa Fe Photo Archive, the New Mexico Photo Archives, the University Art Museum at the University of New Mexico and the Marion Center for Photographic Arts at the College of Santa Fe, as well as numerous private and corporate collections.
