Ryan Emory Member Since October 2013 Artist Statement Born and raised in Aurora, Oregon I have had a camera in hand since my Mom and Dad gave me one on my 13th birthday. From before that time I have always dreamed of being a photojournalist for the National Geographic Society but as life decisions are made and you start to make your own way, those dreams have a way of changing. For the past 22 years now, I've been a Radiographer, marveling in all of the imaging of the human body that we use to help diagnose disease and save lives. Here I plan to show you my true love and I hope to bring you that passion and commitment I feel every time I go out. Rest assured that when you purchase one of my pictures, you are purchasing the adventure, the spirit, and the love I have for this wonderful and ever changing medium. Thank you very much for looking!
