About Rei Ryu

Born in Japan and working predominantly in London, UK in the medium of Photography.
I believe my approach to photography to be very sentimental in that I have a compulsion to document moments which are passing.
Photography itself has this profound way of capturing the essence of past present and future, of accessing all three aspects of time and memorialising memories which would otherwise go forgotten.
In this way I document life all around and like to contemplate the subjects of the photographs that I encounter, whether people or places. I document the narratives of strangers which weave themselves throughout the works, if only for a brief moment.
