Ryan Jones is a self-taught artist living and working on the Sunshine Coast. His love of the ocean led him to surfing and this is where his fascination with photography began. Growing up he spent his early years travelling and photographing surfing for various publications. Over the past ten years Ryan has worked as a picture framer and more recently an Exhibition Installer for galleries, which has allowed his understanding of art practice to grow considerably. Inspired by unplanned and the imperfect nature of analogue photography, Ryan aims to capture experimental moments. Through the process of hand developed film Ryan produces his analogue photography in a home studio environment which allows a very personal connection to his work. In his latest work Ryan has been exploring 8mm film as a medium. He has been included in a number of solo and group shows with in Australia. Recently he has taken on the project of curating the T.Bexon Gallery in Noosa.
