Tom Chambers considers his practice to be not so much about taking photos as “making” them. He creates scenes that evoke magical realism and surreal fairytales by photographing separate elements and assembling them into montages enhanced with patina and warmth. Chambers employs contemporary technology to achieve the luminous quality and dramatic compositions of Old Masters paintings. His aptly titled exhibition, “Reverie,” included images of princess-like girls engaging with the natural world, with an air of post-war painter Andrew Wyeth’s Christina’s World.
