Tommy Sussex is a photographer currently living and working in London. 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.
