Samuel Ryde is a British documentary photographer living in London. Samuel has an obsession to document the conventional parts of life we don’t notice, bringing life and character to objects that are remarkably unremarkable. His interiors project, ‘Hand Dryers’ is testament to this idea and concept – capturing the servitude of an object that is at once as recognisable as it is forgettable. From LA to London, New York to Newport, each location reveals the character of the scene.
Samuel’s ongoing Instagram project, twelvethirtyfourpm aims to capture life at the same point every day. Launched in 2012, this body of work captures the same time, 12.34 pm. Forcing Samuel to stretch his creativity, and bringing forth the beauty of the mundane.
