It’s not difficult to see why Utah native and photographer Ryan Muirhead has a dedicated following of fans all over the world. His series can speak for themselves. Ryan’s body of work can’t be classified in just one area and that’s a good thing. A label can’t limit his work and his photographic style.
Although his works are definitely good, there is a certain quality in Ryan’s work that puts them in a different light. It’s the way he captures a certain moment and adds a bit of calmness and intensity all at the same time. It’s like Ryan’s own self and his awareness of that specific moment are fused with the photograph and the subject.
For those of you who have only recently known Ryan Muirhead’s work and wish to learn more about him, his story, and how he sees photography and art; watch this short video by videographer James John. Indeed, the moment is the thing and not just the photograph all on its own. Well said, Ryan. Well said.
