除旧布新 (Chu Jiu Bu Xin)
Graduated in 2010 from the London College of Communication (University of the Arts London), Phillip Reed (born in 1983 in the United Kingdom) has since created several photographic series that disclose his interest in sociology and architecture. Phillip has developed an acute awareness of urban space thanks to his experience growing up in a small town, living in London for many years, and then regularly visiting metropolises abroad. His series related to China strike the viewer by their neat composition, elegance, and ethereal quality. Phillip has always tried to get out of his comfort zone, by exploring new themes, new places, new genres, such as portrait which he brilliantly masters as much as landscape. He examines the manifestation of individuals’ ideas and ideals in the environment by creating what he calls ‘conceptual documentary photography’: astounding images which yet depict his personal interpretation of the urban world.
