Ryan has chosen Youth in Action as this week’s charity. $200 from the sale of Ryan’s artwork will be donated.

“YIA’s focus is on creating opportunities for youth to become their best selves, to address power imbalances that stifle the potential of poor youth and young people of color, and to create more caring and fair public institutions and systems. To accomplish this, youth at YIA engage in four types of learning and their applications: project based learning to practice leadership and critical thinking; service learning to address the urgent and basic needs of our surrounding community; cooperative learning to develop social change toolkits and peer connection; and adventure learning to inspire young people to look beyond their immediate environments.

Meet the Artist: Ryan Cardoso

“Ryan Cardoso is a storyteller communicating through both photography and filmmaking. His work aims to bring out the absurdity in the mundane of life. Subjects tend to revolve around his neighborhoods, travels, friends, and family: all of which form his identity. The subjects in his work make up a pool of diverse identities spanning different body types, race, gender, sexual orientation, profession, et ale. While his work is very much grounded in documenting reality, there is a blend of magical realism, placing people of color in moments that to an outside viewer may seem like a fantasy. He works to represent subjects by highlighting moments or feelings in their life that may not be immediately noticeable or apparent to an outside viewer. Being that he is an African America, his work is a response to both the black experience and growing up in America as a first generation son.”
