INTERIORS & EXTERIORS
When photographing art objects within their context, I aim to reveal an individual vision. The way a collector exhibits or lives with art is in itself a creation, the reflection of a unique point of view. I enjoy the challenge of handling vast or intimate spaces, leading the eye of the viewer through a complex of images within their surroundings.
Reid applies his expertise to illuminating how a group of works interact with their setting - a home, a gallery or a natural environment. Whether highlighting the drama of a sculpture or the sweep of a room, he applies his long experience to understanding each decor, considering its historical context and the current atmosphere being created. When photographing a collection, he is alert to the environment as an active aspect, a microcosm of the history of beauty.
