Ryan O'Hare

“Ryan O'Hare is an Irish photographer currently based in Toronto, Canada. His approach to photography is similar to his approach to life: he meets it with a sense of playfulness and curiosity, using it as a tool for exploration and discovery. Ryan uses colours and shapes to bring a little extra life to his photos. He drags his initial ideas kicking and screaming through different styles and techniques so that each and every single photo in the end, tells its own individual tale.”
