Tom Allewell is a British landscape and urban photographer, with an abstract and minimalist style, that typically incorporates elements of geometry and surrealism.
His photography is more suggestive than descriptive, more an interpretation than a reflection of reality; that invites the viewer to use their imagination to evaluate and create their own scene.
He does not tend to work on specific projects; preferring instead to focus on developing a broader body of work across natural and urban landscapes; that is dictated more by the prevailing environment he finds himself in through exploration, rather than via detailed planning.
His main interests lie in the relationships and juxtapositions between geometric, hard lined manmade structures, and nature’s more fluid forms; in addition to the challenge of photographing the less conventional, to highlight the beauty in the more ubiquitous scenes that can be overlooked.
He works in both colour and monochrome, dependent upon the subject matter; although he has a preference for black and white, given the mediums ability to directly convey the underlying essence and atmosphere in a scene.
