Reeves has an adventurous mind-he's always looking for ideas and experiences that will draw viewers further into his work. He learned at an early age how to communicate through photography, and the simplest object can excite him and (using light as an interpreter) be translated into art. He wants to share experiences as he sees them: he's full of life, and this energy is evident in his work. At the University of Kansas, he studied art, design and film-based photography-then he moved to New York to assist one of the era's most popular fashion photographers, Arthur Elgort. Working with Elgort, Reeves found himself literally immersed in fashion-he spent his days surrounded by the top stylists, models, designers and editors from the American, Italian and German editions of VOGUE. This experience deepened his knowledge of fashion, and in turn found expression in the striking images he produced when he ultimately turned his hand to still-life and product photography. - Mark Grischke
