About

Reeves’ photographs often focus on the overlooked people and places of London. It can seem frightening and lonely, the disposed at war with the established order, but there is also humour and hope – his images radiate compassion and community. In his images of protest and riot the division between the protesters and the police seems thin, their human-ness is what is most obvious.

“I am interested in the marginalia, the liminal and ephemeral. London is mythical place a place of imaginative resonance and mental fight. In my photography I attempt to indicate this otherworldlyness of London to point out clues and cracks in the engine. This Angel of the precariat, might sentinate such a crack of perception and guide us towards another London, a Crow London...”
