Ryan Winters was born in 1989 in Hopedale, Labrador. He started to experiment with photography when he was about 10 years old with a 35 mm film camera. He transitioned to digital later in his career. Winters is an emerging talent who is largely self-taught, and whose works express an interest in primarily landscapes and wildlife. His images depict processes of formation and movement; visual elements that Winters uses to beautifully capture the shifting intensity and changing light, water, and landscape effects of the Arctic. He favors conditions of low-light photography, such as late night scenes, and expresses a fascination for spectacular light events such as the the aurora borealis. These images are particularly striking for the way he sets his own image against the colourful event using a photographic process of double exposure. Winters is also known for his portraiture, and his images often depict Inuit subjects, such as family or close kin, animals, personal possessions and homes - images that critically portray aspects of time, change, tradition, and modernity in relation to Inuit ways of life.
