Tom Bird is inspired by everything that is around him through colour, form and texture. Having always taken an interest in design orientated subject matter this prevails in his photography. Working as a solo photographer for just under 3 years Tom has picked up a range of clients focussing predominantly on lifestyle areas including interiors, food and portraiture.
Tom’s personal works transform our accepted perceptions of the quotidian and utilitarian by removing evidence of their functionality. Photographed from uncommon viewpoints and without human presence, each subject is re-contextualised as a space of understated beauty. The abstract images reveal secrets in plain sight.
