Photographer, musician, writer, and all around lover and teacher of the creative process, Reuben Radding joins the podcast to talk about his amazing journey from touring musician, to struggling novelist, to street and documentary photographer, and how his love of the practice has been his saving grace in a medium that can sometimes be overtaken by the pursuit of money and recognition. During our conversation Reuben talks about his younger years growing up in the suburbs of DC as the son of two musicians, and the turmoil inside the home that would send him on a path away from the facade of everyday existence and into the music and art scene of the DC area. After dropping out of high school at the age of 16 and starting to the tour the south with his band, Reuben ended up making the move to his now home of New York City in the 80s where he continued to pursue his passion for making music. After a while, he decided he wanted to focus on his new love of writing, and ended up moving west to Montana and then on to Seattle, finally ending up back in New York and picking up a new creative outlet of photography which would soon overtake the others as the expression that most know him for today. When he's not exhibiting his work across the country, or teaching workshops, you can find Reuben wandering the streets of his beloved NYC, continuing to focus on the practice, and as passionate about photography today as when he first picked up the camera.
