In 1979, Reed started photo-eye as a mail-order photobook source in Austin, Texas and moved the business to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1991, opening as a combined photo bookstore and gallery. Today photo-eye has grown to become one of the world’s largest online resources for the photobook. photo-eye Gallery shows contemporary photography in the Railyard Arts District in Santa Fe and emerging artists online at photoeye.com.
