Nicola Davison Reed is a photographer whose exhibition AL_ONE deals with the themes of aloneness, resilience, love, death, and rising from adversity.
With her dark, richly-detailed black and white photographs, she takes us on an exploration through the vulnerable and the valuable avenues of the hu/woman condition with her well-being tool, the camera. Nicola uses a number of different cameras in her work: two Canons, a Fuji, a film camera, and her phone camera for sketching.
Nicola Davison Reed is a professional photographer with a natural-light studio on Eldon Street in Tuxford, where she specialises in Family Portraiture. When her professional assignments are done, Nicola uses her studio (with its homemade backdrops, items scored from the local charity shop, and objects chanced upon lying around) to create atmospheric scenes and still lifes in photographic experiments that broaden her knowledge and test the limits of what is possible. With this conceptual work and her ongoing Street Photography project, Nicola has amassed a huge body of work, which can be seen on her Instagram account nicoladavisonreed. These specially selected pieces, seen together in this solo exhibition make for a rare chance to fully immerse oneself in Nicola’s world of dark and light.
“Photography is my best friend; my third child; my lover; my therapist; my soul mate; my class A; my habit; obsession; and ultimately Photography is my confidante.”
The gallery is open Mon-Sat 10am - 5pm (closes at 2pm on Tuesdays).
