Thomas Dodd is a visual artist and photographer based out of Atlanta, Georgia who has developed a style that he calls “painterly photo montage” – a method he employs in editing software in which he crafts elaborately textured pieces that have a very organic and decidedly non-digital look to them. His work often has mythic and quasi-religious themes that pay homage to Old Master art traditions while at the same time drawing from psychological archetypes that evoke a strong emotional response from the viewer. Although his artwork resembles paintings, his pieces are entirely photographic in nature, fusing many images into a cohesive whole. His larger works are often presented in a mixed media form that adds a depth and texture that complements the photography beautifully.
Thomas has had numerous exhibitions of his works in many cities in the USA and around the world. He also has work on permanent exhibition in Paris at the Galerie L’Oeil du Prince, in the US at the New Britain Museum of American Art and in Sicily at the Museo Arte Contemporaneo . He has had recent shows in Germany, Romania, Argentina, New York City, Mexico City, Orlando, Miami, San Antonio, Seattle, Paris and in his hometown of Atlanta. Dodd’s photographs have been featured in many magazines, on book and album covers and he frequently teaches workshops and webinars on photo-editing and marketing yourself as an artist.
