Michael Reese is an Atlanta based photographer and conceptual artist working in themes explorting family history, identity and metaphorical flight. He received his B.F.A. in photography from The Atlanta College Of Art. His concept driven work is informed by a curiosity in the physical sciences and comparative studies.
Reese exhibits regularly through the traditional gallery system and the broader reaching visibility of public art. Recent notable exhibits include Call and Response, Sandler Hudson Gallery in Atlanta, Monolithic, Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati OH and the international public art project FENCES. “A Force Proportional To Their Masses” is a permanent public art installation honoring African Americans in aviation past, present and future. This can be seen at The Fulton County Aviation Community Cultural Center in Atlanta, GA.
Reese’s work is also featured in selected private and public collections including; The High Museum, Clark Atlanta University, Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, Fulton County Arts Council, Atlanta Office Of Cultural Affairs, Agnes Scott College and Delta Airlines.
