Selected Work: Tom Hunter

Tom Hunter's photographic work makes references to the people and places of his immediate community. He portrays quiet, everyday scenes that give his ‘outsider’ subjects a visible presence and quiet nobility. The contemporary representations of his environment is subtly tinted by art painting references.

Tom Hunter graduated from the London College of Printing with a BA First Class Honours [1994] and completed his MA at the Royal College of Art, London [1997]. In 1998 he was awarded the John Kobal Photographic Portrait Award. In 2006 he was the first artist to present a photography exhibition at the National Gallery in London.
He currently lives and works in London. His work often explores the lives and stories of the people in his neighborhood in Hackney, East London. He has exhibited work both nationally and internationally, in solo and group shows and is also a Senior Research Fellow of the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London.

We would like to thank Tom Hunter for his kindness and for allowing us to feature his work on Centrepoint Collective’ blog.
