Ryan Pfluger recently completed his MFA at the School of Visual Arts and is a New York native. He feels that there is a strong, vulnerable connection between the individual, their sense of self, their surroundings, and their bodies. Pfluger currently lives in Brooklyn and is working on a new body of work about his childhood.
Ryan Pfluger was born and raised in Queens, New York and now resides in Brooklyn. After finishing his BFA, Ryan received his MFA in Photo, Video and Related Media from New York’s School of Visual Arts. For the last two years his personal work has concentrated on ideas surrounding the representation of man, and more specifically of young gay men. His images deal with the sublety of body posture, the gaze, body types and pushing the role of self-portraiture.
