Ryland West’s Portraits of Ephemerality

Written by:


Ryland West

Ryland’s series Portraits of Ephemerality, combines traditional landscape photography with contemporary portrait lighting to isolate the fragile elements of the natural environment most immediately impacted by climate change.

Like fossils these photographs create an impression of their physical form in an ever-changing environment. West continues to treat Climate Change as a multi-faceted issue and aligning his work with the scientific community’s evolving approach to its resolve.
