Melbourne-based, award winning photographer Nicole Reed proclaims that, for her, photography is more than just a career – it’s her reason for living. Rarely leaving the house, never mind the country, without her camera, Nicole is proud to have been bitten by the travel bug and searches for the muse of her next frame around every corner.
While her work is undoubtedly artistic, Nicole draws inspiration from editorial, documentary and reportage photography, but above all, travel. Along with her versatile and adaptive style of portrait photography, Nicole has a niche talent for capturing urban environments, giving way for her to produce truly iconic image collections. Her documentation of urban sprawl, decay and abandon shows not only her sheer motivation for social commentary but also her innate ability to source beauty in places overlooked by the untrained eye.
Shooting a fine balance of derelict and disused environments across the globe, including Indonesia, Japan, USA and her backyard of Australia, Nicole’s images dictate a combined set of emotions – a sense of mourning and celebration for what these places once were.
