Tom Gallagher has a unique bond with urban and natural landscapes. He creates images that respect the authenticity of both spaces. With a focus in landscape and architectural imagery his images reveal the atmosphere and sensibility of place.
After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from Southern Illinois University, he traveled abroad extensively, which has shaped his interest in context and landscape. He currently works and resides between Las Cruces, New Mexico and Chicago, Illinois, where he is the owner and operator of Eleven 9 Studio. His practice focuses on the study of our intimate relationships with our lived environments and properties, creating images and documenting overlooked spaces through the use of digital, film, and polaroid cameras.
Tom's work has been featured internationally in galleries, publications, and media.
“My photography aims to document the natural as well as the built environment in such a way that examines the everyday relationships people have to those spaces. Through my work, I strive to capture common, yet often unnoticed moments of daily life and to share them with people who can perhaps experience a reinforced connection to their environments.”
