To celebrate Tom Wood‘s 70th birthday as well as the release of his new book 101 Pictures selected by Martin Parr and published by RRB Photobooks, the Sit Down gallery presents a selection of prints from his iconic series: Looking for Love, Photieman, All Zones off Peak, Mothers, daughters, sisters …
During 45 years Irishman Tom Wood (b.1951) has taken photographs almost every day. After studying fine arts at Leicester Polytechnic, he moved to Liverpool in 1978. For almost thirty years the streets of Liverpool were the setting for his photographic research. This work, nourished by his daily life, is situated between documentary, life experience and visual research. His images, mostly taken with a Leica, alternate color and black and white, they reveal the bond he has with his subjects.
Happy Birthday Tom!
