About Gary Reed

My name is Gary Reed. My work has been published in The Philadelphia Inquirer, The City Paper, Temple University Press, Print Magazine, and Newsweek. I am the author of the book "The Lost Centennial Project,” (available on Amazon) published by Blurb Press in 2012, which was accompanied by a traveling exhibition shown at the Fairmount Park Visitors Center in Philadelphia. I presented a successful solo photographic exhibition entitled: Jan. First (about the Philadelphia Mummers Parade) at the Imperfect Gallery with an ebook available though iTunes. My portfolio can be viewed at

Presently I am working on a project entitled Unseen Reality. Everyday we walk past interesting, compelling images. They all have their own special, fleeting beauty that can last a second or a day yet remain unnoticed. My goal for this project is to publish and exhibit work. With your support I will be able to complete this project.

I have exhibited nationally in over 30 solo and group exhibitions, including many private and corporate collections. I have exhibited at The Painted Bride, The Paul Robeson House, Germantown Settlement, The ImPerfect Gallery, The Philadelphia Photo Art Center, 3rd Street Gallery, The University of Pennsylvania Museum, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and The Manayunk Roxborough Art Center, among others.

I have a degree in photography from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I contributed in creating several nonprofit artist groups including The African American Photography Forum, The Artist League of Mount Airy, and The Germantown Artists Roundtable. Presently I am a member of the Germantown Artists Roundtable, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Manayunk Art Center, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, and the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center.
