Tom Fels

Curriculum Vitae


Tom Fels (b. 1946, American) has spent more than thirty years curating exhibitions and writing about the history and processes of early photography.

In addition to curating and writing about photography, Tom Fels also creates art in various media. His Arbor Series cyanotypes, represented here at Lenscloud, arose from his lengthy engagement with a single subject: a tree and its dappled shadows on his house in Bennington, Vermont. The discovery of the availability of large-scale cyanotype paper in the summer of 2011 took Fels’ work in a new direction.
