“Tom Reed uses his experience in both Japanese calligraphy and sumi-e for the creative energy in his photographic images. With patience and sharp awareness of the subject matter, he has stepped beyond ordinary landscape photographs, and created extraordinary ones.”
--Dr. Shozo Sato
(professor emeritus in Japanese aesthetics; U of Illinois)
"Your work is the personification of a photographer's photographer. Is it over-the-top to say 'Ansel Adams zone system delicious'? ...Just gorgeous work."
