Reed Young has left the Building...

Reed Young has left the Building...

It gets a bit personal. One of my very dearest friends, a great man with a loud and honest mouth leaves us this week. I, and everyone in Fabrica, wish Reed all the best.

Reed Young, Photography Dept. May 2006, June 2007

What was your life like pre-Fabrica?
Before I started Fabrica I was fresh out of photo school, working for a couple of great fashion photographers in New York. My life consisted of loading film, eating expensive food and sitting on
airplanes in business class, never taking any pictures of my own. This is also my definition of hell.

What was life like during Fabrica?
When I started here I was really confused and angry. When I left yesterday, I was only confused. (This is also the answer to the next question.)

What are you most proud of doing in your time here?

You were known to speak your mind... how did this serve you in Fabrica?
Terribly, just shut up and work. This isn’t a fantasy, it’s a job.
But on the contrary, I really enjoy this quote by Elia Kazan, “When the kicking shoe is on the foot of the man with the bruised ass, he’s likely to use it.”

What advice would you have wanted before coming here?

What's the most important lesson you learned here?
In the business of commercial art, the distance between the bottom and the top is very short. I think they’re actually the same thing.

Best and worst moments?
Best Moment(s): Vorland, Munich, and Sicily
Worst Moment(s): The first 6 months (except Sicily)

What's the plan now, Reed?
I’m moving to Milan to look for work as a prostitute.

Any parting words? Any thanks to give?
Thanks to Luciano Benetton for creating the opportunity of a lifetime for lots of young and talented people. Thanks to Renzo di Renzo for everything you did for me yesterday. Thanks to Enrico Bossan for being a great mentor and a total asshole, I have learned lots from you, and I hope our love/hate relationship isn’t finished. And finally I’d like to thank all of the friends and colleagues I met over the last year. You have been invaluable to me. I have learned more from you in 12 months than I have in my entire life leading up to Fabrica. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with such great people.

You should take expensive food out of your vision of hell, bello. Good luck, I'll see you in Milan.

Good luck Reed! I, too think you'd be great as a first class ho'. x

Darling Reed I wish you all the best for your sexual journey in Milano. If you need any phone box cards let me know, i think i could whip you up something special to guaranteeing you nightly business!

You're a gem, and you really did a number here. An unforgettable and irreplaceable friend, the memories will stay with me as long as your burps lingered! Un bacione bello.
