My love of people-watching came at a young age when my parents would take me along on their many visits with neighbours. I would sit quietly and study their faces as they laughed and told stories with their hands, taking in the details of their kitchens, tea cups, wood stoves, and rubber boots at the door. I still return to the East Coast every October to photograph weddings and portrait sessions throughout the Maritimes, and happily reside on Vancouver Island dodging snow for the rest of the year. And yes, my name really is Ryan.
