Ronald Gehrmann, photographer
New York, NY

A lifelong photographer, Ronald began with 35 mm black-and-white film, at age 14 developing and printing his images in a closet darkroom in Frankfurt, Germany. Occasionally he still misses the whiff of chemicals and the glow of the red bulb.

“Instead of conjuring art theories, I prefer to keep it simple and talk about what I actually do, which is to pass through my days generally amazed by what I see around me — and to have my camera along for the ride.

“I love Zen’s encouragement to stop and pay attention, taking time to explore a subject in depth. It excites me to find that which is otherwise overlooked, to create surprising juxtapositions, to reveal beauty in the ordinary: a smear of graffiti, layers of weathered paint, the unexpected grace of industrial structures.”
