Ransom Ashley’s new body of work entitled “Virgins” captures the emotional happenings of teenagehood while coming of age in small town Louisiana. The photographer infuses an almost cinematic quality into his work as he explores the relevance of both isolation and identity within the teenage experience. Featuring his closest friends and family throughout the series, Ashley claims to have found his main source of inspiration within his own experiences as he allowed the memories and psychological currents of his adolescence to finally have their moment within his timelessly colorful and nostalgic photographs.

 

Born in Shreveport, LA , Ransom Ashley is a photographer, actor, and cinematographer. He attended Parsons The New School for Design in New York City where he was concentrating on photography. He has shown work internationally and been included in shows at the New Britain Museum of American Art, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, and Masur Museum of Art, among others. He has also been featured in select publications such as Parallel Magazine, Ignant Magazine, Metal Magazine, and Dazed and Confused Magazine. Ashley is currently working on his body of work entitled “Louisiana”, debuting in mid 2016.
