Reuben Radding is a photographer, writer, and musician based in New York City. His black and white street and personal documentary photographs depict elusive or unlikely candid moments which provoke unanswerable questions in the viewer. Radding’s work has been exhibited in galleries around the world, and in publications like The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Hamburger Eyes, and many others. His work has also been featured at the Miami Street Photography Festival, the Focus on the Story Festival, and The Center for Fine Art Photography. Since 2019 he has published a popular ongoing series of photo zines, including the three volume series Corona Diary. Radding is currently on faculty at The International Center of Photography. He received his MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College in 2019.
Radding leads workshops in street photography from his studio in New York several times a year via Zoom. These six week sessions employ a stream-of-consciousness approach to shooting, editing, and sequencing photographs, looking past our assumptions of "aboutness" or the factual burdens of documentary practice, yet eschewing the overly predetermined conceptual mandates of many fine art dogmas.
