PHOTOGRAPHERS IN OTHER LOCATIONS
Reuben Radding’s photography is based in the streets of New York City, and primarily concerned with locating energy, gesture, and complexity in black & white images that seldom answer their own questions. For him, the practice of photography is a means toward self-discovery and healing, as well as a quest for images that express something personal about public life, and the mysteries it presents.
Radding began photographing a decade ago after more than twenty years as a working musician and composer. He continues to perform, when not teaching photography workshops at his Brooklyn studio, at universities, or online through the New York Institute of Photography, as he has done since 2013.
Reuben Radding’s work has been published in the New York Times, the Washington Post, Time Out, Maxim, and others, and has been exhibited in galleries all around the US and Canada, in the Miami Street Photography Festival, and on numerous blogs and websites, and commercial clients. Apparitions, his first book of photographs, was published in 2013.
