Photography for me has always be about the story behind the photograph. All Photographers say this and at some point it’s going to get the “So what, everyone says that” reply. Well, I think that Ryan is telling a story that matters because it not only hits on universal themes but gives us some insight into people and cultures we haven’t experienced before.
I have included the text below the video for reference. Ryan certainly hit home about the purpose and nature of photography concerning “compassionate storytelling.”
Let me know you think in the comments.
