Ryan L. Moule works at the intersection between photography, moving image and installation. Often utilising unstable materials and processes as a methodology to destabilise the ‘flow’ of contemporary visual culture, Moule seeks to draw attention to the act of looking and perceiving.

Moule evokes ‘time’ as a central tenet of his practice, placing multiple temporalities and scales - both human and geological - into his durational, often fleeting experiments. 

Alluding to traces and remains of natural and human histories, Moule presents an uncertain vision of the future - an echo from a civilisation to come.

Moule has exhibited both nationally and internationally in group and solo show including Serchia Gallery, Bristol, Materia Gallery, Rome, The Photographers Gallery, London, Flowers Gallery, London, Jerwood Space, London, Ffotogallery, Wales, Format Festival, Derby & ICA, London.



Ryan L. Moule is a Fine Artist, Researcher, Senior Lecturer and Head of Undergraduate Photographic Studies at Swansea College of Art, University of Wales.
