CAITRIONA REED: PHOTOGRAPHY

caitriona

Caitriona Reed through Marcel Duchamp's glass at MOMAI worked as a photographer from 1977 to 1981, arriving in the US in 1980. I was around for the early days of Punk Rock in London in 1977. I traveled and photographed in India and Sri Lanka for most of 1978. I had exhibitions in London of work from both of those projects in 1979. I briefly did commercial work in Los Angeles in i981, did a few album covers, and survived mostly by assisting other photographers, including some of the photo luminaries of the time.

I was sidetracked by my calling as a teacher of Zen/Vipassana meditation and Buddhism www.manzanitavillage.org and later by work I now continue do as a Master NLP Trainer, Hypnotherapist, facilitator of Leadership Training, and Mindset Coach. www.fivechanges.com Caitriona when Christopher

For many years I was a ‘Transsexual in Waiting’ — which is to say, I sat on the fence of gender identity. Now I am simply a woman .. of uncertain provenance.

For nearly thirty years I forgot that photography was one of my earliest and best loves. Now I am remembering and returning to this mysterious and joyful medium.

Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts.

While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.

Dorothea Lange

A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.

Diane Arbus

Best wide-angle lens? Two steps backwards! The camera doesn’t make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE!

Ernst Haas

A photograph is neither taken nor seized by force. It offers itself up. It is the photo that takes you. One must not take photos.

Henri Cartier-Bresson
