Whether the subject is abstract imagery, the natural world, or the human figure, Ralph’s photography strives to foster contemplation and encourage intimacy with the image. 

 

His photography of women is meant to honor womanhood's qualities of sensual beauty, procreation and motherhood. This work is a metaphysical meditation that ponders the powerful, creative, and archetypal character of womanhood.   

 

The series Myths implies a spiritual connection through merging of a human figure with a natural organic subject.  This visual blending of man and nature suggests an erotic transcendentalism, and promotes meditations on spiritual integration and the oneness of an individual with the comprehensive environment.
