The Carnival is a work, taken from a series entitled Collective View, created in 2012. Having travelled through Europe, Asia and North America, building up an impressive body of images that he then combines to make fantastical landscapes, Tom Leighton’s crafted photographs reveal the poetic beauty which can result from painstaking digital manipulation. Leighton is from a new group of photographers who specialise in digital and manual photo manipulation, his work celebrates landscapes and buildings which reflect our past, present and future. The artist has recently shown at the Annenberg Space for Photography in LA and took part in the MTV RE:DEFINE exhibition and Auction at Goss Michael Foundation in Dallas, Texas. Collections include AT&T Corporate Collection, USA; Prudential Douglas Elliman, NYC, William Blair, Chicago/London.
