Ryan works primarily with the black and white analogue process, working as the sole craftsman from the moment the negative is exposed in the camera to the creation of the final platinum palladium print.
I learned photography with film and transitioned into digital when it became available. It was at that moment when my enjoyment of the photographic process was lost and I walked away from photography for more than a decade.
I decided to go back to photography and back to film, large film, and the large format process. The camera is big and the process is slow, but this oversized and somewhat primitive camera design is a romantic and creative way to become more intimate with the subjects before me.
The Brown Bag Lecture Talk series is a presentation of the Portland Art Museum’s Photography Council and is generously sponsored by Pro Photo Supply.
About the Photography Council
The Portland Art Museum Photography Council offers its members unique opportunities to learn more about the history of photography with Julia Dolan, Ph.D., the Museum’s Minor White Curator of Photography. Council membership dues support the acquisition of photographs for the permanent collection. The members’ annual print share meeting, private tours with Dr. Dolan, an annual art acquisition meeting, and special invitations to lectures by renowned photographers are just some of the benefits of Council membership.
The Portland Art Museum Photography Council’s Brown Lunch Talk series, conceived in 2009 by Past Council President Jim Leisy as a means of introducing the Portland photography community to the wealth of talent and creative energy in our region, has become one of the Council’s most popular public events. Since its inception, the BBLT has offered over sixty monthly presentations by regional and visiting photographer/artists that are free and open to everyone interested in photographic arts and process.
