Tom Wood (born in 1951) is a celebrated artist who helped redefine how we think about photography in Britain. His work explores the medium itself, as well as the world around him.
Containing over 450 colour and black & white photographs this catalogue was produced to coincide with the show 'Photie Man: 50 Years of Tom Wood' at Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
This is the first exhibition to survey Wood's entire career. It brings together his photographs from the 1970s to the present day. The show was selected with the artist from his vast archive of around one million pictures, assembled over the last 50 years.
The photographs range from intimate portraits to candid street scenes and awe-inspiring landscapes. The majority were made in Liverpool and Merseyside, where Wood lived from 1978 to 2003. Known locally as the 'photie man', these pictures capture the region during a time of great social change. They also reveal the special relationship between Wood and the people he photographed. In Wood's own words: 'I couldn't have made this work anywhere else.'
