Photography of Curtis Reaves
Curtis Reaves’ award-winning photography can be found in commercial and residential spaces, and will exhibit at Swissvale Library starting December 2nd. His work is influenced by the process of envisioning the countless possibilities unearthed in discarded materials. Inspired by shapes, textures and unusual compositions, Reaves finds the most interesting things in unexpected places. Reaves states, “My creative passion and strength is founded in an intrinsic ability to take discarded materials and found artifacts, and transform them into distinct pieces that have a lasting impact.”
