Founder, Documentary Arts Asia
Ryan spends a lot of time getting to know his subjects and very little time post-processing.
In addition to his own work, which has been exhibited and awarded by Nikon Salon of Tokyo and funded by the Pulitzer Center, Ryan spends much of his time directing the Documentary Arts Asia center and F/28 photography festival.
Ryan is a lecturer at Chiang Mai University’s photography Dept & teaches regularly for many other organizations.
He is the recipient of the 2011 Chapnick grant from the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund.
