photo-eye Gallery is pleased to present new work by Tom Chambers. For over twenty years now, Chambers has been constructing narratives that merge reality and dreams seeking to go beyond the expected. His images illustrate fleeting moments that seem believable, but likely implausible. Influenced by magical realism—the literary and artistic style popularized in Latin America in the early 20th century—Chambers new work certainly lends a ring of truth to our times, as it was all created during the Coronavirus pandemic. As usual, his images are inhabited by children and animals, but in this new work Chambers takes us a bit deeper into the magical realism of the moment, to illustrate how the breakdown of the every-day forces us to confront expectations that lie at the basis of our understanding of the world. He writes about it: 
 

Inspiration for my photography usually comes to me through travel to somewhere unfamiliar. During the Spring 2020, I had planned a trip to London only to have Covid hit. I floundered for a while as I worked to come up with a new series or direction. Rather than crawling the walls, I tried searching through my older photo material. I discovered some interesting images that slipped my attention years ago.  The search was similar to taking a journey to faraway places in the comfort of my studio.
