Tom Stone has an interest in how different communities perceive individuals' personalities. His work explores issues such as racism, stereotyping and prejudice. Through photography, he delves into the influence of the press and its approach to censor and suppress these subjects.

Tom aspires to act as an advocate for people who are often judged to be on the edges of society, often not conforming to contemporary trends.

The diversity and creativity of artisan craft intrigues him. It is within these hidden gems that he not only finds diversity, but also a similar theme of those who tend to be forgotten about.

Tom endeavours to respond to each subject in an individual manner, working with them to achieve an authentic response to the process being photographed. Tom aims to work commercially, but also show his images in galleries, exhibitions and book form.
