Ralph Rinke

Ralph Rinke photograher

Ralph Rinke is a Fine Art Photographer living in North Vancouver on the West coast of Canada. He shares his Cyanotypes and Platinum Palladiums.
From: North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Shows: Cyanotypes and Platinum palladium.

With camera in hand for over fifty years, Ralph Rinke has for decades, created photographs for individuals and corporations alike. Currently, he is exploring the work of the avant-garde Czech and German photographers from the first half of the 20th century.

Some of Ralph Rinke’s recent work of everyday objects and places are viewed in an abstract sense, drawn to diagonals in compositions and contrasts of geometrical areas of light, shade and reflection.

Most of his personal projects are monochrome and have a theme based on a sense of place and nostalgia.

“Combining a 19th century handcrafted process with 21st-century technology, a mobile device in hand, we have access to more information and any number of resources worldwide. Practicing alternative photography is getting better all the time.”
