Thank you for the responses, Ryan!
Ryan’s photography is just made up of well observed peculiar moments. Take for instance his response to question 12 suggesting that the park no longer exists. The girl in the foreground by all means is the subject of the photo…in her own mind and anyone at the park observing this photo being made. Yet the boy in the mid-ground playing guitar comes off the most interesting. He isn’t even interested in us and so we follow his gaze to an older boy who happened to catch a man the moment he has bailed on a skateboard in the background. A peculiar moment that through his composition leads us through. To anyone else this would have perhaps just made for a solid portrait of a girl or a stolen glimpse at a boy playing guitar.
