Andrea Couture submits Tom Chambers

Tom Chambers is a contemporary photographer that creates photomontages. He takes multiple photographs of things that relate to an idea that he originally sketches out using either a digital camera or a medium format camera. These photographs are then pieced together to create fairy tale-like images that speak to the subject of innocence, adolescence, growing up and man in nature. He says, "I present unspoken stories which illustrate fleeting moments in time and which are intended to evoke a mood in the viewer." All of his images definitely have a romantic, dreamlike quality to them. I am most intrigued by his series called "Marwari". In this series he pictures young girls with Marwari horses which gives a sense of innocence. There is also a sense of nostalgia in these images with the clothes he chose to depict the girls in and the coloring he used throughout the series. After reading his quote from above, I get the impression that this is a feeling he tries to capture in most of his images.
I really enjoyed most of his photos and I hope you'll check them out. Here's his website:
