One/One-Thousand: REED + RADER
Photo Duo Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader (REED + RADER) are fresh faces in fashion photography. The 25-year-old recent SVA grads were just featured as one of the 13 Emerging Artists in American Photo Magazine's 30th anniversary issue. They combine their fairly common fashion photography style with hot graphics to make a new statement in the pages of fringe magazines. My favorite examples of their work feature teeny-tiny replicated pattens of femmes, but they don't reproduce so well here. You can see them in all of their glory at R+R's special site, which includes a blog by their studio cat, and an opportunity for you to play fancy photo editor and take a virtual flip through their portfolio. Fun stuff happens at around the 3:12 mark.
