David Ryle, born in 1978, is a photographer living and working in London. His work has been exhibited in various galleries as well being used for both editorial and advertising campaigns. He studied at Berkshire School of Art and Design, graduating in 2001 with a degree in photography.
His images have been selected for the AoP, IPA Awards and The Creative Review Photography Annual on numerous occasions, winning gold at the AOP in 2010. Within his work he explores the notion of space and the human relationship with our surroundings, often he is drawn to the idea of nothingness, shooting the redundant space between two territories.
He frequently sets off on self-set projects, travelling alone for a few weeks at a time, trying to shape found imagery and observations into narratives. He has been influenced by the work and styles and processes of Joel Sternfeld and Philip-Lorca diCorcia as well as Andreas Gursky.
