Mariko Reed was born in Hawaii and raised with a combination of Japanese sensitivity and American ingenuity.
The daughter of a general contractor and a fashion executive, she is at home on a job site or beside a runway, bringing a unique sensibility to her photographs. While attending photography school, she discovered her quiet patience was the perfect match for architectural photography. Her work focuses on capturing images with respect to the natural light and feeling of a space.
Mariko also keeps a large vegetable garden, loves being in the ocean, rock climbing, and is learning to weave Danish cord.
