Tom Peterson began his documentary photography career after his retirement. He photographs almost daily while exploring different urban centers in CT. He has exhibited in numerous juried shows and solo shows at Gallery on the Green, Canton, City Gallery Gallery, New Haven and Christopher Martins, New Haven. Tom's Photographs are in corporate/business collections and homes.
Since retiring 2003, Tom has devoted himself to photographing local urban environments. He has set out to create a visual epic poem, with different themes that explore everyday objects, people and scenes. He often focuses on the play of strong shadows and cropping to create abstract images of everyday structures that we often pass by, but rarely notice. Through his black and white and color photographs, he seeks to create for viewers the experience of a unique, visual walking tour.
