Thom Bridge


Born 1987 in Reading, UK, Thom Bridge is a half British, half Swedish photographer and artist working in London. Educated in both Britain and Sweden, at the University for the Creative Arts at Farnham and Valand Academy respectively, Bridge is currently a sessional lecturer in Photography at Canterbury Christ Church University. Bridge’s practice is characterised by his continued investigation into the dualities found between photographic language, his mother tongue (English) and his recently learned mother’s tongue (Swedish). It is within these dualities that his practice operates—never one or the other, English or Swedish, analogue or digital, one twin or the other, but in fact always both. Over the past couple of years, I have exhibited a variety of photographic works in solo and group presentations, ranging from straight-forward prints to sculptural works and installations. Often exhibited as connected constellations or in tandem with other works, my practice addresses the materiality and specificity of photographic printmaking and papers.
