Working at the intersection of long exposure photography and exploration of the built environment Tom Blachford’s Fine Art Photographs seek to transform predictable and known environments into surreal and dreamlike worlds.

Obsessed with capturing the moments of clarity, colour and mystery that exist just beyond the limits of our human perception Blachford explores the ability for his camera to bridge our worlds to dark worlds beyond our reach.

Captivated by architecture, not only for its sculptural forms, Blachford’s images of homes, towns and suburbs act as the the stage for unwritten narratives that implore the viewer to script their own drama happening behind the walls of each scene.

Using only existing light sources – the moon (Midnight Modern), The neon Lights of Tokyo (Nihon Noir) or the harsh street lights of LA (Noct Angeles) Blachford hunts for the overlooked cinematic moments in the everyday and works to distil them with a sense of mystery, unease and wonder.
