My creative vision uses the mushroom’s bizarre and varied shape, alien textures and intricate detail combined with lighting skills to create crisp images with a dose of abstraction. The abstraction allows for more than one interpretation. It depends on the viewer’s imagination to use their own memories and experiences to build content. The created creatures, life forms, or faces are not beautiful or cute but rough, strange, and weird and speaks metaphorically with people’s diversity, uniqueness, and unusual identities that are not too often accepted and approached in society.
Bio Contemporary fine art photographer Dale M Reid took charge of her destiny by making a commitment to herself and her life partner and soulmate. Reid’s belief in herself has allowed her to chart a new course in life as a full-time professional artist and transgender woman. As Dale transitioned through her new life journey, she developed technical skills, questioned convention, trusted her instincts, and with her passion, was able to craft a distinctive artistic voice. Her artwork ranges from classical to sensual to erotic and engages the viewer to question what they see.
