Ryan Stander is North Dakota Quarterly’s new art editor and to celebrate this, we’ve convinced him to share a little gaggle of his photographs from his instagram feed.
Ryan hails from Minot State University in Minot, North Dakota. His work (in his own words!): “explores the reciprocal relationship between humanity and a world of physical objects and places. In particular, I am interested in the cultural frameworks, including beliefs, biases, and assumptions that guide human interactions with the material world.”
His collection is called Wayside Sacraments and this title embraces Ryan’s deep interest in art, ritual and Christianity. They’re full of beauty, irony, style, and provocative juxtapositions.
