This limited edition print complements Ryker Allen’s debut monograph Cherry Blossom, a photographic story about first love. In Trevor, First Time, 2016, Ryker offers up a poetic record from their initial encounter with a soon-to-be love interest and muse, Trev. Trevor, First Time, 2016, literally embodies the notion of love-at-first-sight and serves as a metaphoric prequel to Ryker’s book Cherry Blossom made during a week-long vacation, when Ryker candidly documents their unrequited desire.
As a film photographer, it’s very important to me that my photographs are crafted with the patience and care of medium format. You as a viewer can trust that each image is an honest moment of vulnerability captured permanently by my lens. — RYKER ALLEN
