Tom Hunter – Saatchi Gallery

Tom Hunter was recommended by our friend and photographer Ella Cobert, his work is personal and intense do have a look at his gallery on the Saatchi site

Hunter photographs the people and places of his immediate community. Woman Reading Possession Order, is part of a series of work he made of a group of squatters living in Hackney. In this photo, Hunter borrows his composition and colours from Vermeer’s A Girl Reading At An Open Window. Like Vermeer, Hunter portrays quiet, everyday scenes which give his ‘outsider’ subjects a visible presence and quiet nobility.
