Josh Reiss has used imagery for expression throughout his entire life.
His talents in drawing and computer graphics led to a career spanning over a decade in special effects working on productions for Pixar and Sony Imageworks, as well as teaching at the School of Visual
Arts in New York.
Reiss uses photography to examine moments and motion as a refraction of a greater lyricism. His current work involves finding significant personal moments amidst the chaos of a large scale gathering. It is in these 'intimate spectacles' where Reiss finds the sublime amongst the fleeting moments and subtle details of human experience.
Over the past four years, Reiss has developed a large online following for his photography of the underground artistic community in downtown Los Angeles. His coverage of events is regularly featured in CityBeat, Metromix, and New Angeles Monthly.
