Photography: Moody and mysterious street photography from Brooklyn's Ryan Page

Posted by James Cartwright,

Brooklyn-based photographer Ryan Page creates work that’s utterly timeless; street photographs of his native New York captured with an unassuming eye. His monochrome images have a film noir moodiness that recalls Hitchcock and a narrative ambiguity that’s evocative of the mysterious tangential plots of fellow New-Yorker Paul Auster. Ryan makes his images with mystery in mind, as he told The New Yorker: “Mystery is a word I come back to a lot in my work. I’m always inspired by the mystery that’s invoked when we look at images whose context is unknown. I believe the mind is attracted to these types of images because they force viewers to use their own imagination, allowing them to experience the wonder of possibility.”
