Ralph Mercer, a New England native, is an alumnus of Rhode Island School of Design where he obtained a BFA in  photography and studied with Harry Callahan and Bert Beaver. He received his MFA in visual design from the University of Massachusetts, where he studied with Dietmar Winkler and Elaine Fisher, and taught photography as a graduate teaching assistant. 


With a studio in Boston, MA, he specializes in digital photography and photo-collage, creating fine art photography with an emphasis on the figurative and the landscape. His images are licensed worldwide and published in a range of digital and printed media. In addition to being a full-time artist, he is a photographic illustrator and carries out portrait commissions and other photographic projects.


His photographs depict the human figure, nature, and the everyday environment, all interpreted with his sense of visual poetry, whether they be figure studies or abstractions of the visible world.
