Raymond Grubb is a native of Morganton, NC. He is a graduate of Davidson College and is one of Charlotte’s most recognizable cultural icons. For over 25 years, he has photographed his partner––the multi-media artist Tom Thoune. Raymond’s century-old platinum process imbues his images with a warmth, tenderness, and candor that is difficult to attain with modern techniques. During the pandemic, he produced a series of meditative knolling studies, including this piece. Raymond is an alumnus of McColl Center.
