My images focus on the youth of the nation and its rebirth as a country. In China everybody talks about the future. China now feels like a young nation, ironic if we consider its 5000 years of civilization and tradition.
Phillip Reed is a talented photographer with a sublime eye to capture the interaction of the city and its inhabitants. His work focuses on the effects of environment upon the experience of the individual.
His images offer a unique vision of life in big cities, in a perfect mixture between street and stage photography. His final-year project HOME, winner of the year’s Hotshoe LCC student award 2010 is the perfect example of this.
He is currently working on an ongoing project called In-between; a photographic collaboration between him, based in London, and with his identical twin brother Anthony, who lives and works in China.
