I like taking pictures of people. I think that there is an indefinable energy that happens when a person gets in front of a camera, and I feel a sense of liberation when I am behind it.

I started taking photography classes when I was eighteen years old and was fascinated with the darkroom being able to see how the image slowly appeared in the paper. Taking pictures became natural but I was not focused on photography until years later. As time took its course, I studied marketing at the Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores, in Monterrey, Mexico. Although I enjoyed studying marketing I felt there was a void in my life and I decided to do what really makes me happy and that is when I came to San Francisco to study Masters in Photography at The Academy of Art.

  • Eoghan Ryan: Against the Day
    Feb 1 – Mar 24, 2024
    Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art
    Oldenburg, Germany
    Irish artist Eoghan Ryan’s solo exhibition Against the Day at the Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art spans moving image, installation, performance, puppetry, and collage. His new commission, the video installation Circle A (2023), premieres in the company of three installations from recent years. These works explore the intricacies of how power is communicated through media culture and language. In adapting personas, characters, and unrehearsed conversations, they expand into fable-like takes on the collective and the personal as “institutions”. (more…)

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT. All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)
