Allen Bryan

Despite his genetic eye disease that causes progressive tunnel vision and color distortion, Bryan has a passion for landscape photography. He yearns to experience vast panoramas before his vision becomes too narrow. With a visual field of less than 10 degrees, he sees discreet fractions of the world in intimate detail. His eyesight echoes his rapid style photography as he explains: “The sudden way that things appear in a camera’s viewfinder or screen is similar to the way I go through the world.” Bryan graduated from the State University of New York with a degree in art education. He has taught art and filmmaking in public schools and owned a fine craft gallery. Bryan’s photography won the Best in Show award at Art Ability in both 2011 and 2014.
