Robert Rattner’s documentary, nature, and underwater images from more than 60 countries have appeared in hundreds of magazines worldwide including National Geographic, Smithsonian, The New Yorker, Audubon, The New York Times Magazine, Natural History, Der Stern, and Geo France.  He was awarded the Marty Forscher Fellowship for humanistic documentary photography for his documentation of growing environmental threats. His widely published photograph of a manatee under a boat propeller was one of just 21 images selected for National Wildlife‘s “40 Years of Extraordinary Images.”  Praising his   Worlds Within Our World, A Look at Three Fragile Environments exhibit, The Washington Post wrote that “...two Galapagos land iguanas perched in a sea of fiery red vegetation...cast a jaundiced eye at the viewer as if to say "It may look inhospitable to you, but we live here".  Rattner makes it clear that we would do well to remember that." 

 

“...your work is of the high quality and socially significant subject matter that is worthy of receiving this year’s award.  The environment is a concern to all of us and your images give a clear indication of the importance of our concern, for now and for the future.”


--- Benedict Fernandez, Chairman of the Photography Department at Parsons School of Design, New School, awarding Robert Rattner the Marty Forscher Fellowship, for humanistic documentary photography, citing his documentation of growing environmental threats.
