Ryan downie, photographer/creative director + annie leib, writer/business director = sauce photography
Philadelphia native ryan downie had a revelation on the beach one dewy morning just before sunrise. His brain was in constant motion which was typical. Words and thoughts danced around in his head. For as long as he could remember this is how his brain operated and didn’t know how to communicate all of this. That morning, he photographed the sun peeking over the horizon and the waves created a cadence of crisp but gentle white noise. The lifeguard stand seemed lonely and cast a weak shadow onto the sand.
