Emily Ryder BA (Hons) Photography

Emily Ryder

Emily Ryder is a photographer and artist residing in Manchester, England.

Growing up, she developed a connection to domestic and documentary style photography, with a focus on the ‘everyday’.

Ryder shares a fondness for the overlooked moments in life, which hold capacity to create meaningful and inspiring images. Often photographing those closest to her, she reflects on the normalcy of life and the issues which often trouble us.

The imagery is a combination of film photography and archive imagery, which creates work which challenges societal ideals.

The work incorporates digital image manipulation alongside handwritten text. Ryder's work allows an audience to step into the images, mirroring parts of their own lives. This can be seen through the concept of pushing past society and social media to truly accept and love ourselves.
