Ryan in his own words...
"From a very young age I'd been fascinated by the power of the still photograph. I'd be transfixed for hours staring at my father's collection of photographs that his grandfather had made. Two generations and a World War had passed and there in the smallest of objects stared back my own history. It's these encounters that led me to pursue photography, a want to learn not only the techniques of photography but also its meaning and place in the world.
My experience at Neath Port Talbot College provided me with the right knowledge and skills to apply to my practice and enabled me to continue to progress into higher education, resulting in good exhibitions and contributed to helping me to get to where I am now".
