My name is Tom, born in 1978. I've been interested in photography since I was a teenager. Photography helps us to look at the world around us, it's the way to show and express our emotions. Finally gives us opportunity to remember some unique moments and show crazy ideas which were born somewhere in our imagination. Why do we take photographs? To arouse emotions, all the good ones and bad ones, to wake up our memories, our imagination and hidden feelings, finally to take a brake for a moment in everyday's madness.
Since the early beginning, I have been seeking for another way to show what is hiding in my imagination. Pure photography was simply not enough. So I can honestly say, that reality was boring for me. Pretty quickly I fell in love with digital photography and postprocessing - photomanipulation. It took me several years to learn how to use Photoshop properly. I discovered that this learning process may last forever. For me it's great experience to discover new things and tricks. I'm not sure if it's even possible to discover all features which this application gives us, however becoming better and better it's pure fun.
Two most powerful things affecting our senses are: image and sound. For me it's a harmonious whole. It's strange but I can not think about the image without music. It's simply impossible, that's why my exhibitions are always connected with carefully selected music backgrounds. Everything around us is changing. All we have, are our memories and dreams. It's important, to make them special and unique.
Using Photoshop I'm trying to run away from reality, which sometimes can be annoying and stressful. Yes you can say that I'm outsider. It's pretty obvious, I agree. Sometimes I feel like a martian. I don't belong here... From early age I was very close to the sea and ocean. I can't imagine life without huge waves and all that enormous power which ocean brings. That's why in majority of my pictures you can find a connection with the ocean in some way. My goal is to create a digital parallel reality sometimes more or less scary, surreal, but in my opinion it's better world. Hope you will enjoy it.
