Reuben Radding’s photography is based in the streets of New York City, and primarily concerned with locating energy, gesture, and complexity in black & white images that seldom answer their own questions. For him, the practice of photography is a means toward self-discovery and healing, as well as a quest for images that express something personal about public life, and the mysteries it presents. He is currently working to complete an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at Goddard College, in Plainfield, Vermont.
