Education: Ashley attended Parsons, The New School for Design in New York, where he studied photography. He later transferred to Louisiana State University in Shreveport, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
Aesthetic: Ashley’s work is resolutely narrative. A certain theatrical or cinematic atmosphere paints his work with retro, nostalgic colours, which he says are characteristic of certain small towns in the American South.
Influences: His experience in the theatre merges with his psychological and cinematographic interests. He’s also inspired by Cindy Sherman, Guy Bourdin and Irving Penn, and the way they combine colour and story.
