Public Personalities presents a body of compelling traditional and digital photography featuring portraits and street photography. Spanning 40 years across the region, Mr. Bryan explored ways to connect with strangers in order to capture a range of interesting and unconventional people in public places, through both candid and engaging interactions. The results are a series of images that investigate the personalities of our shared humanity.
Cash Bryan has been a professional photographer since 1984 working in several genres including photojournalism, weddings, portraiture, and fine art. Throughout his career Mr. Bryan has remained interested in using the camera as tool to find connectivity between passersby. He began exhibiting professionally in 2010, and Public Personalities is his first solo exhibition.
“I have turned my passion for people to street photography. The work attempts to move beyond the use of photography to capture conventional beauty and the contrived environment, and instead seeks the beauty in the awkward or unusual. These are the pubic personalities of everyday people in their everyday lives.” – Cash Bryan
