Meet Thomas Dodd
A visual artist and photographer based in Atlanta, GA, Thomas Dodd has developed a style that he calls painterly photo montage, a method he employs during principal photography and in editing software. He crafts elaborately textured pieces that have a very organic and decidedly non-digital look to them, often featuring mythic and quasi-religious themes that pay homage to Old Master art traditions while at the same time drawing from psychological archetypes that evoke a strong emotional response from the viewer.
Although his artwork resembles paintings, his pieces are entirely photographic in nature, fusing many images into a cohesive whole. His larger works are often presented in a mixed media form that adds a depth and texture that complements the photography beautifully.
Thomas has had numerous exhibitions of his works in many cities in the USA and around the world. He’s had recent shows in New York City, Paris, Mexico City, New Orleans, Tokyo, San Antonio, Seattle, and in his hometown of Atlanta. His photographs have been featured in magazines, on book and album covers, and he frequently teaches workshops and webinars on photo-editing and marketing for artists. Interestingly, Thomas was best known as a musician and harpist in the 1990s and did not start his visual artistry until 2005. Today, his images are basically a visual equivalent of the music he composed, and the results continue to astound and amaze.
