Ralph Mercer Photography (@fastlenz)
Ralph Mercer is a New England native and an alumnus of Rhode Island School of Design (BFA, photography) and University of Massachusetts (MFA, visual design)
A former commercial photo-illustrator, Ralph now specializes in creating fine art photography with an emphasis on the figurative. His digital photo-collages have been published widely and exhibited in Boston and worldwide.
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 and constructed world.
I’m a self-taught contemporary, realist portrait artist. My mediums of choice are colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal. Even though my drawings feature my friends and family members they ultimately tell the story of me.
