The work of Nicole Reed feels like a dimension jump, with each of her photographs having a depth that tricks the brain into thinking you could actually reach into the image beyond the fore. There is sharpness and bite to her work that marks her apart from field and regardless of what she is shooting, be it a dimly lit crime scene or fashion expose, a dormant beauty can always be found in the resulting image that is almost ethereal.
