Eliot Porter was a photographer famous for his work in color. The photo above, taken at fall's height, is called, "Porter Meets Pollock" by Ketchum and his crew.

"As a young photographer, I think Eliot Porter had a significant influence on me," said Ketchum. The photo above combines the flair of a painting by the famous artist Jackson Pollock and the photographic subtlety of Eliot Porter. In Ketchum's photo exhibitions, the above photo is four feet by six-and-a-half feet, much like many of Pollock's paintings.

"It's very typical of what [Wood-Tikchik] is like on the ground," Says Ketchum. "It's difficult to get around anywhere, difficult to move, untrailed, and pretty much impenetrable."
