Ryan Walker

Ryan Walker (MFA, Ryerson University) is an award-winning, Toronto-based photographer and filmmaker specializing in social documentary and visual advocacy.

His abiding interest lies in the interdependence of geographical and corporeal bodies. How does location shape subjectivity, and vice versa? How might documenting a place and its people simultaneously confirm clichés while throwing them into relief?

These questions inform all of Ryan’s projects, which have taken him from remote off-grid communities to crowded urban streets, where he conveys an intimate sense of place in a poetic and emotional form. Ryan’s work is also sympathetic to the ecological effects of the economic exploitation of the land that surrounds us.

Inspired by a curiosity about the so-called authenticity of identity being influenced by the surrounding environment, Ryan’s work blurs the lines between photojournalism, documentary and conceptual art.

Ryan Walker (maîtrise en beaux-arts, Université Ryerson) est un photographe et cinéaste torontois primé spécialisé dans le documentaire social et la sensibilisation visuelle.

Il s’intéresse à l’interdépendance entre les corps géographiques et physiques. Comment un lieu forge-t-il la subjectivité, et vice versa? Comment filmer un lieu et ses habitants confirme-t-il des clichés tout en les mettant en relief?

Ces questions, au cœur de tous les projets de Ryan, l’ont mené des collectivités hors-réseau aux rues noires de monde, dont il rapporte l’esprit intime sous une forme poétique chargée d’émotion. Le travail de Ryan s’intéresse aussi aux effets écologiques de l’exploitation économique du territoire.

Curieux de comprendre la façon dont l’environnement influence «l’authenticité» des individus, Ryan travaille dans la zone grise entre le photojournalisme, le documentaire et l’art conceptuel.
