Peter Reid ARPS
Peter Reid is now semi-retired and divides his time between the North East of England and the South of France, from where he combines a lifelong interest in photography with his research into European Gothic Architecture and the management of ten virtual galleries at Redbubble.
During 2007 he spent nine weeks, in three visits, in France, visiting Vannes for the Festival International de la Photo de Mer in the Spring, Aubusson for the Tapestry festival in the Summer and Paris for the student riots in the Autumn, shooting more than two thousand images. The focus of his research lies in the forgotten landscape and the lives of the people who were responsible for our medieval, and earlier, architecture. His practice utilises medium format and 35mm digital photography, digital video, historical text and images in an effort to provide an insight into a bygone age.
His earlier work on disused railways looked at the remaining trace elements of the branch lines that were discarded during the 1960’s. Reid’s later work looked at the transport system that was killed off with the advent of the railway system and in so doing highlighted a variety of sophisticated skills that were largely taken for granted in the day to day life of the typical navigator. He, of that itinerant army of rumbustious workers to whom a great debt is owed.
In December 2007 Peter Reid was awarded the degree MA Photography at the University of Sunderland.
