Lori Ryerson is a contemporary photographer based in Toronto, Ontario. After a visit to the Egyptian Sahara, Ryerson realized that she had much to learn in the field of photography and so in 2010, she received formal education in the medium. She has attended Humber College School of Media Studies, Haliburton School of the Arts and the Niagara School of Imaging. Ryerson now pursues a career as an artist photographer full-time.
In describing her photography, Ryerson writes:
“I marvel at the wonder of our universe. I look for the stories left behind in abandoned landscapes. I seek out the mystery in mundane, daily occurrences. In an increasingly noisy universe, I use my photography to show what silence looks like.”
Ryerson’s works can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada and the United States.
