Joné Reed is a London based photographer. Her instagram account is mainly focused on portraiture, primarily sequences of dark and grainy shots, playing out like a movie but also intertwined with colour imagery, laying bare a story of intimacy. Allowing the viewer to observe the relationships between her subjects, depicting family members with all the complexity that that brings. We view emotional discoveries, moments of calm and deepness, quiet and introspection. This is more than a personal visual diary, Reed realised she was giving shape to her own childhood memories and at the same time portraying generations evolving over time, on connected poetic and tender journey.
Jone Réed explains in her own words “I’ve started using photography as a medium to liberate myself of some personal daemons when I was younger – there was a vacuum to be filled and photography became some sort of a life buoy and now its something that partly defines me as a human being.
Image making allows me to visually talk to people without words showing the small glimpse of my universe through a very personal perspective and most importantly enables me to create lovely memories of and for my children…”
