ARTmonday: Tom Chambers Landscapes with Animals and Girls

I discovered Tom Chambers‘ photography on Artsy a year ago when I was curating the ARTmonday post Figures in the Landscape. These fantastical portraits of young women with animals in fairy tale-like landscapes have a moody quality, mixed with the irresistible subject matter of alternately adorable, ferocious, and exotic animals and girls swathed in taffeta and tulle.

Tom Chambers was born and raised on a farm in the Amish country of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He graduated in 1985 from Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, after which he worked as a graphic designer. He has concentrated on this evocative, photographic storytelling since 1998.

Here are 18 examples of Tom Chambers’ photography.
