Gabriel Kenny-Ryder is a London-based visual artist. He uses a range of complex, tactile photographic processes to interrogate visual representation and the genre of portraiture, exploring photography-as-performance and the relationship between art and spectator. Gabriel uses these methods to create unique photographic 'objects', often as part of installations or environmental works. These pieces allow the viewer to interact with his work on a more physical and conceptual level than more traditional methods of display.
He is also the photographer behind the Weekend Journals' books, sincerely photographing beautiful and stylish places to visit in Cornwall, Provence and London.
Gabriel received an undergraduate degree from the University of Edinburgh before undertaking an MA in Contemporary Art Practice at the Royal College of Art.
