Linda Reif’s photographic image production tends toward sculpture and abstraction. Her work is strongly linked to an interest in lens-based media and methods reflect the unsentimental way she approaches photography. Her main focus lies in the distortion, the non-glossy impact of images, while investigating the vulnerability of photography and the poetic impact of sculptural display.
