      Ryan Florig Blends Skate Photography with Guns, Weed, and Fire

      May 25, 2013

      Ryan Florig is an American in his mid-20s with a knack for the natural. Self-taught with disposable cameras, this Washington-based photographer thrives on the principles of street photography. He won't be found in the studiomost of his photo stories involve him passing by "the moment" while on his bike. None of his photographs feel hurried or spastic but instead are carefully composed and further examined through the viewfinder before he snaps. That confident freedom doesn't come easy. It is the product of riding the same streets over and over again.
