Tom Hoops (born in early 70’) English Artist.
I actually don’t remember how I discover Tom Hoops, Sorry ! But I do know that since I have sawn those portraits, I could not get those out of my head. Maybe because of the perfect black, and the limpid white, maybe because of the expression of every character composing the gallery. Strong faces, dark look, beautiful fragility.
Since then, I discovered an other portraitist which make me think about the strength of Tom Hoops faces. Let’s see the next article on Song Chao… Different stories, different country, but same emotion.

About Inspiration (PhotoInterview)
My main inspiration is transforming a subject, taking that special something and finding an angle a look that others would ordinarily miss.. Other than that, I will often have little ideas that just spark here and there, I try to note them down and keep a diary of them all. Unfortunately I don’t have the time these days to put them all into practice. On a personal level my wife remains an inspiration, the transition to full time photographer was not easy and she really helped me a lot.
