Tom Gore

My work lies near an intersection between Piero della Francesca and Salvador Dali, between Sandro Botticelli and Paul Delvaux with a clear nod to Rubens and William Mortensen. Current work includes street photography in Europe, the image as metaphor and the nude, both in the studio and the landscape. I work out of a beautiful large studio in Victoria's historic Chinatown and shoot with a Nikon D850, the trinity of lenses and work in Adobe's Photoshop with a mess of plug-ins.

After university I became a commercial photographer specializing in fashion and architecture. Since those days I taught art photography, photo journalism and the history of photography at the University of Victoria for many years. I lecture and write about the history of photography, especially the nude and the portrait, and have won many awards including the Photographic Society of America's for critical writing and Gold medals from Muse Photography, Graphis, Pannonia, Prague and Slovenska, Silver from Toronto, One Eyeland and Photo Shoot Awards and Bronze from Moscow, Trierenberg, London International Creative and Photo is Light. I've curated or juried more than fifty exhibitions of photography and served on the boards of the Society for Photographic Education, the BC Civil Liberties Association, the Canadian Federation of Rights and Liberties and the Professional Employees Association. For biographic info see my listings in Who's Who in American Art and the Macmillan Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists and Innovators.
