Tom Hunter - Various works
Tom Hunter is a UK born photographer (in 1965) quite notorious now. His pictures do not deal with what is usually my focused thema, I mean the body, but, much similar to Gregory Crewdson, placing his models in some environments, he tells something about the place of our body in the world. He uses old painting masters (Vermeer, Millais) as sources of influence in making their scenography contempory with unknown and often modest persons, showing how beauty and emotion can raise from anybody's life. In brief, it's an importante modern creator although he may be a little mainstream and honoured for my own taste. His site here.
