Christopher Rauschenberg ’73


Although Christopher Rauschenberg represents photography itself to many in Portland (he was co-founder in 1975 of Blue Sky, Portland’s first photography gallery), his reputation is both national and international: he has had 55 solo shows in Europe, South America, and the U.S. His current projects include a photographic documentation of Portland, expected to take more than eight years and involve a dozen artists, and a rephotographing of 500 images of Paris made by Eugene Atget. Rauschenberg’s work captures the unexpected beauty of ordinary places; in his own words, “We see so many wonderful things on vacation mostly because we are taking a vacation from the things that keep us from paying attention to the world around us. Why not pay attention more often?”

Brad Rickerby ’80

Photojournalist Brad Rickerby traveled the world as a child with his father, Life magazine photographer Arthur Rickerby, and got his own first Life photo credit at age 7. After earning an M.B.A. at Duke and working in corporations, he decided to return to the life he loved in photography. His work is syndicated worldwide and has appeared in almost every prominent national and international newspaper and magazine, including Le Monde, the New York Times, Stern, Vogue, the International Herald Tribune, and many others. He also shoots for Reuters and other clients as a stock and assignment photographer. His current interest is in cities at night, and his blurry-motion works convey the movement and excitement of the urban nightscape.


Leo Rubinfien ’74
Leo Rubinfien has exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and many other prominent venues; his latest one-man show was at the Robert Mann Gallery, New York. He has published two photographic books: A Map of the East (Godine/Thames & Hudson, 1992) and 10 Takeoffs 5 Landings (Robert Mann/Idea Books, 1994). He has won Guggenheim and Asian Cultural Council Fellowships and was the first artist appointed a fellow of the International Center for Advanced Studies at New York University, where he now teaches at the Gallatin School. His current book of photographs and texts is concerned with the idea of a global city and people who live between countries, belonging to many or none.
