Photography & Films
Film maker and photographer Ryan Hopkinson works across disciplines with a refined aesthetic that plays to the sensibility of advertising and luxury image making. A collision of art and commerce, his projects marry highly conceptual art direction with precise styling and a polished eye for cinematic detail to create mesmerising and fascinating worlds for viewers to explore. Ryan’s thematic and visual inspiration draws equally on fashion, art, science and technology.
His commercial and personal work has been commissioned by a range of brands and editorial titles including Louis Vuitton, Kenzo, Rolex, Reebok, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Wall Paper magazine, The Museum of Jeddah with curation of the Tate Modern, Issey Miyake, Sony, Its Nice That, Wonderland, Nowness, Creative Review, amongst others. Ryan’s work has won him top spots at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, The D&AD Awards, and the Young Guns ADC Awards, amongst others. His talent has been recognised five times in the Creative Review Photography Annual.
CONVERSATION ABOUT PAINTING
“The project initially started with the discussion of painting and how/why specific works can be defined by movement, style or history,” says Ryan. “Our conversation progressed to the point where we thought about that first paint stroke and if you could define a piece of work from it.”
