"The trees in these photographs are from places that carry many memories for me, near where I live in the Santa Cruz mountains, and near where I grew up in Connecticut. Just as memories are built up over"¨time, forming complex webs of repetition and reinterpretation, the photographs in this series are built up from multiple exposures. Since my digital Hasselblad camera does not have the built-in ability to capture"¨ multiple exposures, I had to create my own method. Covering the lens with a board, I leave the shutter open for a few minutes, periodically making exposures by letting light in through a slit in the board, and"¨moving the camera between exposures. Since I'm never sure quite what the result will be, the process is full of surprises and serendipity, just like the process of forming and finding memories."

Ryan Bush has been a fine-art photographer for more than sixteen years, during which time he has honed his abstract vision focusing on finding the beauty hidden in everyday objects and the sacred hidden in the mundane.

Ryan's abstract photographs are influenced by his background in a number of other areas. He received his BA in Linguistics and Russian from Swarthmore College in 1995, got his PhD in Linguistics from UC Santa Cruz in 2000, and speaks eight languages. Music is a big source of inspiration for him, as he plays the flute and has a strong interest in classical music. He is also keenly interested in the relationship between photography and other media such as painting and drawing.

Ryan uses a Hasselblad medium-format camera. While he had worked in the darkroom for almost ten years, he currently works digitally, producing archival pigment prints with an Epson inkjet printer. His work has been exhibited in many solo and group shows in the United States and abroad, has been featured in a number of publications, and is included in a number of collections including that of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
