Stan RaucherEvery third Wednesday of the month at noon, photography enthusiasts gather at the Museum to hear talks by regional photographers, gallerists, historians, curators, and collectors.

Stan Raucher – Candid Photography

My candid photographs of people in public spaces around the globe provide a compelling glimpse of human emotions, interactions, and connections. Whether documenting routine activities or special celebrations, my images open a window to the world that surrounds us here and now. I’ll describe my artistic vision and my method for capturing these fleeting moments. I’ll also discuss my approach for enhancing a narrative through the editing and sequencing of images, especially with regard to the design of my monograph Metro: Scenes from an Urban Stage. The slideshow will be illustrated with images from several of my recent projects.


Stan Raucher has been documenting aspects of the human condition with his candid photographs for over a decade. His honors include CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography finalist, Critical Mass finalist, PX3 Bronze Award winner, and Black+White Magazine Showcase Competition first place winner. His images have been published in LensWork, Adore Noir, Black & White Magazine, Slate, The Daily Mail, The Independent, Lenscratch, Shots, and Life Force Magazine. His award-winning monograph Metro: Scenes from an Urban Stage was released by Daylight Books last year. His work has been displayed in numerous exhibitions, including solo shows in 2017 at the Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon, and The Print Space in London, UK.
