Ryan loves the dark-and-light, shadowy work of Irving Penn, Bill Brandt and Julie Albert (see above). An unbelievably talented photographer himself, Ryan is as patient as a saint and as humble as pie. All that and he never asks us, “Where’s the beef?” (a vegetarian), never makes us say, “Cheese” and despite his preference for Sonic Youth, never complains when we listen to the ‘80s band Musical Youth. Dreamy, isn’t he?

PS. We’re huge fans of the ever-kind Matt, Ryan’s right hand.
