I first found out about Reed + Rader (Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader) via Tumblr. I stopped scrolling through all the random subtitled screen caps and discomforting genitalia close-ups posted by those I follow to concentrate on these dramatic high-fashion photos; suddenly, they began to take life and move! What a simple yet impacting concept! Since then I’ve followed their multimedia work and became pals with Pamela through good ole’ social media. Not only is she a talented and creative hotshot, she’s also quite the domestic lady of the household. She constantly teases me by posting mouthwatering shots of her from-scratch meals: Of course, I had to include them along with her work for a personal element. Also because I really like candy apples. I admire how much heart she puts into everything; from her bright hair dyes to her exceptional media work to what goes in her tummy. I think I’m also just really hungry because I’ve been editing photos for so long and forgot to have breakfast.
