Richard Bickel's photography crosses 70 countries and has been published throughout the world. His passion for exotic waters - Africa's Niger and Burma's Irawaddy - brought him to Apalachicola in 1994. He has since been capturing the rich culture of Florida's last stand, publishing the best-selling photo books, The Last Great Bay and Apalachicola, An American Treasure. Bickel's work has also appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, Conde Naste Traveler and Travel and Leisure, and internationally in Die Zeit (Germany), The Times of London and Italian Public Television.

A recipient of the Golden Quill for photography and the New York Art Directors Club Award, Richard Bickel has exhibited in galleries throughout the United States. He resides in Apalachicola where he maintains a gallery of his photography in the town's historic district.

Fine Art Prints: Apalachicola River - Life on the Fringes of Florida

Richard Bickel's Apalachicola River runs wild through the intoxicating, almost imaginary terrain of Florida's central Panhandle. Here amid shadowy marsh and sun-soaked swimming holes is life on the Florida fringes - the ancient rites of backwoods baptisms, weekend mud-bog races, and hunting the Thanksgiving hog.
