James Reeder | Brooklyn NY, USA

Short bio…

A native of Michigan, I spent a few years in California where I studied and taught photography, but now make Brooklyn NY my home. I’ve always had a darkroom and still do, and hope soon to open a small gallery in my thriving artist neighborhood.

You shoot film because…

I’m still using film and darkroom not just because I love and want to preserve the medium, but because anticipation is inherent in the analog film process. The latent image that exists on the unprocessed film, and the wait in the darkroom for the image to appear are natural extensions of the theme of anticipation in my work. The monochrome palette furthers the idea of a glimpse into possibility by reduction to shapes and symbols.

Your photography feels like…

Eerie, familiar, hand made, drawn, landscape
