Telling stories. Taking Pictures. Making art.
Séamus R. Ryan is a visual narrator with an eye for epic adventure. Séamus' images can be divided into two categories: Earth + Water and Mythography. As a photographer, Séamus ventures through stunning landscapes in search of the perfect shot, sometimes endangering himself in the process, collecting images for his Earth + Water series.
As a concept artist, Séamus forges handfuls of his photographs together into images illustrating mythical characters and locales in the ongoing series called Mythography: the fusion of mythology and photography. Through his distinctive combination of photography and matte painting, Séamus is able to illustrate fantastic subjects in a photorealistic way. Dominant among Séamus' mythical work is a series entitled the Saga of Nine Realms, an adaptation of Norse mythology.
