"The Memory Mapping Project" A Visual Memoire
Where does memory live? Existing in subjective mental time travel. Elusive in nature caught between the episodic and the semantic. These images travel back through my childhood triggering the multi-senses. Smell, taste, touch or sound that bring me to a time and place that recall emotions and memories that are still deeply felt. Memory is multi-sensory. A smell, touch, sound or taste can transport to a place of long ago. Memory can be investigative, nurturing and reassuring. With time memory can become revisionist, we hold on to them, good and bad. It can define who we are, it hold our secrets. But memory is elusive.

GARY REED "Humans & Angels"
Throughout my life I have always been an explorer, a person who always asked questions. Some of the questions I have asked, have been about religion. In my Catholic school education I never found spiritual release, although I have been able to find it through my work. I see photography as the eye that doesn’t blink, that doesn’t judge, but is an enhanced eye that can view the world on another plane of existence. My portraits tend to look sincerely into the person’s deeper self or emotions. I look, not for what is beautiful, but what is honest in a person. GR
