Tom Sussex is an editorial, documentary, and portrait photographer currently living and working in London.

Sussex originally grew up in Devon and relocated to Bristol to study Photography in 2012.

The images he makes attempt to render an individual social reality that carries political weight.

His process focuses on self-experience and attempts to navigate that which falls outside of expected photographic reportage, to encompass symbolic gestures and abstracted scenarios.

Sussex is currently developing long-term projects in Eastern and Western Europe whilst shooting for a broad range of commercial clients including:

Fred Perry, Financial Times Weekend Magazine, Crack Magazine, The Bristol Post & New Statesman Magazine.

Commercial portfolio available on request.

Tom is currently studying a Master’s Degree at Goldsmiths University in London.
