Ryan Winters is a photographer whose work focuses on aspects of time, change, tradition and modernity in relation to Inuit ways of life. Winters first began experimenting with a 35mm film camera when he was approximately 10 years old. As a self-taught emerging photographer, he depicts formation and movement using the process of double exposure to impose the shifting light of the aurora borealis against the Arctic landscape. Winters favours low-light conditions such as late night scenes, which allow him to capture the night sky. He is also known for his portraiture, depicting Inuit subjects such as family, friends, animals, possessions and homes.View Long Biography and Citations
