Samuel Ryde is a British documentary photographer living in London. Samuel has an obsession to document the conventional parts of life we don't notice, bringing life and character to objects that are remarkably unremarkable. His interior project ‘Hand Dryers’ is a testament to that. Capturing the servitude of an object that is at once as recognisable as it is forgettable. From LA to London, New York to Newport, each location reveals the character of the scene.
I was born in 1986 and I always have been interested in painting and the art world. In October 2013 I finished the master Degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Turin where I specialized in Painting with Contemporary Art and Graphic Engraving workshop.
My project in recent years focuses on a particular type of landscape. A contemporary landscape in which I look for a continuous comparison perspective giving imprtance to the monochromatic background that I use in all my artworks.
