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 work also investigates the various failures of photography and how they shift our perception of reality and the self. Photography is technically inaccurate, often highly manipulated, and extraordinarily ubiquitous in contemporary culture. The products of his work exist as traditional photographs, digital prints, videos, and unique art objects. Ryan grew up in Louisville, Ky and is currently based in Paris.
