Born and raised in the North East, Tom has travelled the world producing powerful photo-essays on the serious issues of our time, including the fall of the Berlin Wall, the election of President Nelson Mandela, the bloody siege of Sarajevo and the wars against Saddam Hussein in Iraq. His photojournalism appears regularly in leading publications and has been honoured with awards from World Press Photo, Visa pour l’image, Pictures Of The Year and the Eddie Adams Workshop. In 2006 he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society.

The exhibition and accompanying book will feature both familiar and less well known photographs displayed together to mark Tom’s 50 years in the industry.
