Tommy is photographer and educator currently living and working in Hackney, London. 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: BBC, Fred Perry, Financial Times Weekend Magazine, Crack Magazine, The Bristol Post, and Newstatesman Magazine amongst others.

Commercial portfolio available on request.
