Photography as a salve for loneliness by Ryan Pfluger

Photographer Ryan Pfluger shares how he came to use the medium of photography as a means for therapy and connection. During several solitary road trips within the United States, Ryan unexpectedly discovered that by the spontaneous meeting of strangers and the gentle expression of kindness showed by acknowledging someone else’s true self-worth, he was able to not only heal his own loneliness but that of many others.



Ryan Pfluger is a New York-based photographer. His photographs often deal with the subtly of body posture, the gaze, and the role of self-portraiture, as an exploration of what portraiture means in our presently-saturated culture of images.

Born and raised in New York, Ryan received his MFA in Photo, Video and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in 2007.

About Ryan Pfluger:


Born and raised New York photographer with a MFA in Photo, Video & Related Media from the School of Visual Arts.  Captivated by nostalgia, my work often deals with recreating memories, memorializing objects and how sexuality influences image making.  Exploring what portraiture means presently in our culture, my photographs deal with the subtlety of body posture, the gaze and the role of self-portraiture.  Most importantly, I allow my subjects to be present.
