Winston's Ghost: The Photography of Ryan Gustman

Though he may not admit it, Ryan Gustman is an artist. In an age where photography is over-saturated, Ryan combines his photography skills and love of urban exploration. These adventures lead to powerful photos that evoke feelings of danger and beauty. In an attempt to bring light to the lost history of Winston Salem, North Carolina, Ryan documents abandoned and broken buildings. He embraces the danger of trespassing in hazardous locations, and his own personal struggles with autism to artfully capture abandonment and natural decay through the lens of his digital camera.
