Nancy Ryan Keeling

Nancy Ryan Keeling (United Sates) Residence: August, 2016

Nancy Ryan Keeling is a self taught photographer. Her work explores how people cope with traumas in life and how they follow spiritual paths to make peace with their grief. She takes an unapologetic approach with the camera, as she delves into the dark places, of the human condition.

Her photography brings attention to people, who might not otherwise have a voice. Nancy’s work has been exhibited in the “Black Lives Matter” movement in USA and Poland .

During her stay at Studio Kura Nancy will be working on her ongoing series

She will be working in and around Fukuoka and Itoshima exploring cross cultural issues between the Japanese Obon Matsuri and the Latin American Dia de Los Muertos Ceremony in Texas, where she lives.
