Ryan Smith, a Berry College graduate and former photojournalist, is a fine art photographer. He is well-known in Rome, Georgia for his unique perspective and captivating images. His art can be found on the walls of the local hospital, businesses throughout Rome and in the living rooms of art patrons all over. While a majority of his art is focused on the city of Rome and Berry College, he is also renowned for his "decay" photographs, which bring a beautiful perspective to areas others would view as deteriorated. Ryan's most recent project, the White Piano, has blurred the lines of his styles. Beginning in the world of decay, the White Piano has ventured throughout Rome and Floyd County for some of the most acclaimed photographs yet.
