“I begin by taking photographs from magazines and books. I reassemble and rephotograph these found images as objects in a studio… The images are decontextualised in this staged studio setting and become open-ended, intersecting and looping back into the constant rush of visual information.”
James Reeder lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. I first saw his work on instagram about two years ago. The delicately constructed nature of the scenes and the worlds he was creating really struck me. The appear almost like unfinished hollywood stage sets from the 60’s or architectural models. The fragments of found images James incorporates into his images are his actors or inhabitants. Curiosities that interact with one another. As well as creating these structures by hand, James then chooses to shot them on film. The resulting grain and the soft textures of his apparatus work so well together.
