Note - all works are framed using traditional wooden moldings painted black, as with the example above.

These photographs explore the representation of high and low art, suggest a history of white privilege, and play with the nature of art construction. These images were shot with a digital camera (Sony a7R iv) at museums, cemeteries and in the front yards of private homes. Others were made by scanning images from Reed's collection of photographs, further blurring the line between between the "ownership" of images. If these photographs feel artificial or manufactured, what would be more appropriate in what Franklin Foer described in The Atlantic as the, "collapse of reality," an age where we increasingly cannot tell what is real from fake?
