Art Intersection presents three collections of work by internationally known and collected photographer Ryuijie. Ryuijie, whose platinum work can be found in Ryan Gallery, shows us the versatility of his creativity with selections from his Color Ice Forms, Underwater, and P2 bodies of work.
COLOR ICE FORMS
“Ten years ago I began working on a body of photographs I call Ice Forms. The subject matter, botanicals frozen in blocks of ice, photographed in color, provides an element of the unexpected and unpredictable. This element can be likened to the Japanese principle of wabi sabi—beauty in nature in all its imperfections.” —Ryujie
“Underwater features a new sellection of marine photographs. These photgraphs are taken using a wide panoramic camera. Unlike Kanchi the photographs are captured digitally and printed digitally.” —Ryujie
“The P Square photographs began as a way of keeping my traditional photography alive. My life in photography began with the landscape. These are small platinum prints, each holding a wealth of details and subtle tones, allowing for intimate, close-up viewing. These are all taken using film cameras. The film is later scanned and digital negatives are made for platinum printing.” —Ryujie
