Tom Chambers

Tom Chambers is an American photographer who creates intriguing photomontages which hint at strange stories and magical unspoken tales. His series Animal Visions is a wonderful example of what he does so well. Focusing on his fascination with the animal kingdom, this work explores the relationships and connections between people and animals and creates wonderful images that are surreal and beautiful.

“While working on Animal Visions I found myself circling back to the influence of magic realism” says Chambers. “In the early 20th century Latin American writers and artists used magic realism to create images, which with a simple twist go beyond the expected into the unexpected.”

Chambers goes on to explain that the series aims to tell unfinished stories, tales which may initially seem true or believable but, most likely are improbable. It’s a wonderful collection of images and the full series is well worth checking out.
