Joseph Reddy is a London-based photographer whose artistic practice is often based on questioning the perceived norms. He converts this investigations into images which alter the viewer’s recognition of familiarity.
This interest led Joseph to explore a space in which an otherworldly event is said to have happened. In late December 1980, near Rendlesham Forest in England, a series of sightings of unexplained lights were reported.
The signs have become linked with the claims of unidentified floating object, UFO. Fascinated by such a spectacle, Joseph visited the place and created a visual narrative, which conveys the atmosphere of this event. His images transfer the viewer back in time and give a chance to participate in such an extraordinary performance, taking place within the dense pine forest. The series titled Above the Pines invites the beholder to take a space journey, arising a lot of questions, yet allowing the one to move forward without answering.
