Zachary Reid

When he's in the mood to talk, Zachary Reid still talks about his book, "Cuba, More or Less" (Kohler Books, 2016), because he's supposed to, but he talks even more about his paintings, which are getting most of his attention these days, and some about his photographs and a lot about wherever he's headed next, most likely in search of proof that whatever he keeps reading in the news is only part of the story. Mexico and Miami, most recently, back to Cuba soon, anywhere else he can slip off to for a few days. No matter the locale, he's always in the market for a funny story, visual inspiration and a good cup of coffee.
