|About the Artist:
Stan Raucher was born and raised in Saint Paul, Minnesota, during the age of black and white television, Life magazine photo documentaries, and the publication of The Family of Man. These early influences are reflected in his photography. His black and white images reveal aspects of the human condition with candid images of ordinary people interacting with one another and their surroundings, and his approach to documentary projects is fashioned with compassion and empathy.
