A fascinating look at classic themes such as loss of innocence, civilization vs savagery, and struggle to build civilizations. These themes are amplified in the overly polarized times we live in.

Solo exhibition by international conceptual photographer, Christopher Ryan.

The exhibition features movie poster prints from his own interpretation of Lord of the Flies shot on Koh Si Chang, Thailand with an all Thai cast comprised of a local troop of The National Scout Organization of Thailand.

This is one of four exhibitions on the St. Claude Arts Campus held during PhotoNola.


The opening reception on December 10, 2022 from 6 to 9 pm will be immediately followed by the PhotoNola Festival’s official closing party.

The closing week in January will be accompanied by an artist talk along with the 60 year anniversary of the screening of the original Lord of the Flies (1963 film).
