Thomas Michael Alleman

2004

About

Any commuting New Yorker's worst nightmare- an overturned umbrella. A scene that many people would walk by unaware, Alleman captures the true misfortune and despair portrayed in a single displaced object. Thomas Alleman’s urban landscapes convey the pulsating energy and sensual excitement of city life. With an eye for the visual rhythms and geometry of buildings, highways and parks, his photographs transform ordinary structures and events into emotionally charged images of modern life. Through Alleman’s lens, the evening rush hour becomes an abstract in motion, shimmering like jeweled brocade. Alternating between reality and fantasy, his image is rich in emotional content. By carefully organizing the disparate objects inside the picture frame, Alleman creates surreal images that are wholly photographic ­ a reality that only a camera can see. Most of Alleman’s photographs feature a dark circular halo that surrounds the image and draws the eye into the picture’s unique reality. This non-digital effect is caused by the Holga camera he uses. “The Holga’s bizarre optics,” Alleman explains, “have given me access to a realm of richly textured suggestion, impression and allusion.” Alleman’s influences include Henri Cartier-Bresson, Lee Friedlander and Garry Winogrand. A graduate of Michigan State and a successful commercial photographer, Alleman has received many prestigious awards over the years for his photojournalism and portraits. Among them, the 1995 California Newspaper Photographer of the Year Award, the 1996 Los Angeles Photographer of the Year, and the Mark Twain Award from the Associated Press 1997. Alleman lives in Los Angeles. Listing is for UNFRAMED print. Inquire within for framing. Edition 1 of 25.
