Reuben Radding (Washington, DC, 1966) is a photographer based in New York City. His photographs are the result of an improvisatory practice that combines street photography with a more personal documentary approach aimed at removing any separation between his artistic life and the rest of his life, and presenting a visual world that intentionally leaves unanswered questions in the viewer's mind. 2017 saw his first solo show "Street Record" exhibited at the Prospect Range Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, and he has also had works in group exhibitions in Europe, Canada, and around the US, including the Miami Street Photography Festival. His work has appeared in many major publications including the New York Times, The Washington Post, Maxim, the Financial Times, Hamburger Eyes, Adore Noir, and the websites of NPR and the Huffington Post. Previous to his life as a photographer Radding had a long career as a musician, beginning in the DC punk community, and then worldwide since 1988 as a stalwart member of the NYC "Downtown Scene." He has performed in 14 countries and contributed to more than 120 recordings as a bassist, composer, and producer. He is currently working toward an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at Goddard College, in Plainfield, Vermont.
