About/Contact

Marea Reed is a narrative photographic artist, interested in creating stories which still leave room for interpretation. Born in Sydney, Australia, she has worked in journalism and film.

He work is about finding the intangible and putting it in a frame – expressing the interior world of memory, dreams and feeling, and their universality. Influenced by the Old Masters and cinematography, her work balances both intimacy and context with an enduring goal of emotional connection and recognition. This is evident in the way our relationship to the spaces we inhabit is central to her work, stemming from the belief that surroundings profoundly affect who we become.

Marea has exhibited in numerous group and solo group shows around Australia. Internationally she has exhibited at the Biennials of Fine Art Photography in Berlin and Barcelona, and in Barcelona as an Honorary Mention in the Julia Margaret Cameron Award and the Pollux Awards in 2019 and 2020. 

A finalist in multiple prestigious art and photography awards, she was one of only four Australian photographers shortlisted in the 2019 Royal Photographic Society's  International Photographic Exhibition 162 (IPE 162); won the Fine Art, Single Image category of the 12th Julia Margaret Cameron Award (2018) and the Art category in Capture magazine's Top Emerging Photographers of Australasia 2016.
