Reece is a Sussex based artist, which is where he spent his childhood roaming the fields, flood plains and woods that created the influential backbone to his camera-less work today. His work often focuses on recapturing nostalgic images of the past, giving strong feelings of déjà vu when making his work.

The prints themselves somewhat feel like studies of the creatures as though your observing them through a glass container in a laboratory.
