Hi! I'm Tom Polous

When I was 7, my dad gave me an old film camera, some film and a challenge to photograph the world from a rambunctious kid’s perspective. Watching those images slowly appear on paper in the darkroom sent me on a 33 year photographic adventure that hasn't stopped yet. I hope you enjoy my view of the world, as much as the kid in me enjoys creating it.

Seeing the world from another perspective is more than pretending you're as tall as a child with a new camera. Every project needed a solid narrative— sometimes it’s spontaneous humor, a thought provoking retrospective or commentary and sometimes the image is open to the viewer’s interpretation.
