These fantastical portraits of young women with animals in fairy tale-like landscapes by Tom Chambers‘ 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 examples of Tom Chambers’ photography.
