Ryan Boatright

“Untitled (Island)”


Although my projects vary, they are often crafted from a blend of technical and conceptual processes that evaluate common familial experiences, the environments that shape them, and the pictures that document them. Having grown up in a suburban neighborhood in Kentucky, my photographic work examines the grey atmosphere surrounding mainstream America and the formal commonality of design found in suburban architecture and neighborhood planning. Ryan Boatright is an artist based in Paris, France. He received a degree in photography from Indiana University in 2005, and joined the staff of the Image Permanence Institute (IPI) at RIT from 2005-2009, where he performed research on visual methods to identify and characterize historic photographic materials and contemporary digital prints. In Paris, he is co-founder of Atelier Boba, a private photograph conservation lab and non-traditional digital print shop.
