Ryan Walker is a Toronto-based photographer, specializing in documentary, editorial photography, and visual advocacy.
Walker's work has been exhibited in Italy, Russia, Finland, Canada, Australia and the U.S. He has also received several awards, grants, and scholarships, including a Docking Station artist’s residency in the Netherlands (2020), PDN’s Emerging Photographer (Fall 2017), Magenta Flash Forward Emerging Photographers award, an Ontario Graduate Fellowship, and a Magnum Photos scholarship.
Propelled by a curiosity to explore our modern-day relationship with nature - which is both symbiotic and fraught - Walker is especially interested in people and communities who model alternative ways of living with and off the land. We all have a fundamental need to connect with nature, and the closer we are to it, the more determined we will become in protecting and preserving it.
