One of the photographers in the show belongs to Ray Des Roches. Ray fell in love with photography in a basic photography and darkroom course in graduate school at California State College at Long Beach, California. His work took him in another direction, but now retired he’s hoping to develop photography and framing into a part time career. His camera goes everywhere with him including on his 30’ sailboat. Loving both nature and photography, he shares his way of looking at the world through his photographs. Des Roches is a member of the Norwood Art Association, Scituate Arts Association and South Shore Camera Club. He also was juried member of the Hull Artist’s Studio Connection.
