Chasing Storms With Jim Reed

JIM-REEDS-AMAZING-EXTREME-011The extreme-weather photographer and storm chaser Jim Reed has spent the past 20 years as close as possible – perhaps closer than is advisable – to the most extreme meteorological events. Pics after the jump. Covering disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Ike, Reed’s book, “Storm Chaser: A Photographer’s Journey,” documents his time in the field.
Surviving the direct strike of 17 hurricanes in the US, 2010 marks Reed’s 19th consecutive year of extreme weather photography. Reed currently has images being shown at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington.
