Scope and content
The Lyman S. Reed photographs are his work while he was a Photography student at the Art Center School in the 1950s. This comprehensive collection covers assignments such as portraiture, food, advertising, exposure, and texture. Because Reed had an interest in architecture, he photographed quite a few office buildings and mid-century residences. The projects are completed brochures and assignments he presented for critique in class. Also in this collection are a few objects used by Reed while a Photography student, including his exposure meter and film holders.
Notes on the negative sleeves (usually camera settings used) as well as explanatory Post-It notes from the donor on items in the collection have been transcribed into the Notes fields.
