Mike Reed has always had a camera, at the ready in his hand. His working life was as a film editor of TV Commericals has made him see life at 25 frames per sec and faster. Quick , mercurial and short lived .
Mike Reed is an antenna for ideas…for interesting-ness.
A fisher of images.
A wanderer of back streets because life from ’behind’ can be more savoury.
Waiting , wishing, watching …while quoting what Raghu Rai ( Magnum Photographer) said..."I wait...(pointing skyward) and He performs"
Mike finds Melbourne emulates a wonderful global delicatessen within its leafy and concrete ‘aisles’ as roads and ever festooning glass displays as in buildings. Therein resides an exotic and diverse populace which provides stimulating flavours, strange customs , behaviours, occurrences and quirky human characters .
All this fusion from confusion serves to provide exciting concoctions unequalled anywhere especially for Mike as he seeks the unusual moment, the juxta-pose , the eclectic electric snap of this delectable cosmos.
