Reed + Rader produce some of my favorite pieces of contemporary photography -- with one glance at their portfolio, you can find both alluring and yet disturbing elements. The muffled women, the isolated desert scenes; the subject of each photograph seems to be the photograph itself. I wouldn't just call them photographers -- they're visual artists that combine stunning photography with computer arts. Animation included.
Is it intriguing? Most definitely. Is it Vogue? Probably not; I'm guessing Anna Wintour wouldn't like the strange purple monster in that model's hand.
