Dana Reed -
Only photography allows me to capture the light and shadows in such detail. Whether I work in digital or film I love the freedom photography gives me to express what I see about the world around me and to experiment with process, image and presentation.

My work in colour and toned monochrome prints tends heavily to images of nature. Growing up in Thunder Bay, Ontario, I spent a lot of my time outdoors and it is not surprising that my love of nature is reflected in my art. What is surprising, having studied science for years, is that I’d end up wanting to be an artist in the end.

I’ve been studying photography for a few years now at Langara College and with various instructors. I was greatly inspired by an exhibition of pictorialist photographers I viewed recently and am learning several alternative print processes. I love spending time in the darkroom and am working on printing methods such as lith printing and bromoil for some of my future projects.
