Ryan Boatright’s work pivots around the mundane aspects of the everyday. He is inspired by such things as routine family interactions (a pool match, an email, or a lunch), snapshot photographs, and the iconic visual repetitions inherent in our immediate surroundings. His interests in snapshots and the science of photography also lead him to examine the role of photography in the mainstream and to investigate the medium’s ability to measure reality. His work frequently exposes the medium’s shortcomings via technical and conceptual representations.
Ryan grew up in Louisville, Ky and is currently based in Paris. He is a former research scientist at the Image Permanence Institute in Rochester, NY, where he was involved with the research and development of imaging techniques used to characterize the visual and physical aspects of photographs. Ryan also teaches and lectures on photographic and digital print processes, and in 2011, he started the digital printing studio Atelier Boba.
