Description The end of August found me in Grey's Harbor, WA shooting a movie. In my time off set I had the chance to snap this shot. The morning before, this had been the trunk of a once proud tree, stood up on the beach. Apparently it looked more beautiful on fire to someone else.
Ryan Barret, Seattle Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement Thanks for looking at my work! A bit about me: I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area performing musical theater and Shakespeare with various theatre companies. I moved to Seattle for college and completed my BA in Drama and Dance in June of 2007. It wasn't until I took a year off from college in 2003 that I discovered photography and a totally new form of expression. Unlike my other interests, it didn't require any sort of performance on my part, no interaction with others; it was a chance for me to find solitude with my subject. I found this new and vastly important for me as a growing artist, and I continue to expand my view of the world I live in by finding beauty in the ordinary. I hope you enjoy seeing the world through my eyes!
