Tom Hunter

After the Party, 2000

Tom Hunter

Tom Hunter lives in east London and his work often explores his community and neighbourhood. In 1998 he won the John Kobal Photographic Portrait Award for Woman Reading a Possession Order. This was a portrait of a young mother which closely referenced Vermeer's A Girl Reading a Letter by an Open Window, except that Hunter's subject was reading an eviction notice from the council.

In 2006 he became the only artist to have a solo photography show at the National Gallery for his series Living in Hell and Other Stories, which used headlines from the Hackney Gazette to re-stage scenes from art history.

He is currently exhibiting Searching For Ghosts at the V&A Museum of Childhood which presents a glimpse into social housing in east London.
