Tom Chambers Photomontage Retrospective
Introduction by Elizabeth Avedon

"I am very aware of the balance of nature and disturbed by the negative impact of global warming. This is not only a problem for the animal population, but it’s now starting to affect us directly through fires, extreme weather, and scarcity of water. I have a daughter who will be on  this planet for years to come. For her I worry about the shift that is happening now." – Tom Chambers

"Tom Chambers is a visionary artist, a mystical storyteller. When I was first introduced to his work over a decade ago, I was immediately drawn into his masterful world of staged surrealism, combining ideas and images, the mystery of which only he seemed to have the key to unlock." – Elizabeth Avedon
