The Cynthia Corbett Gallery is pleased to present our forthcoming solo exhibition for emerging photographer Tom Leighton – ‘Outwards from Home’ born from Leighton’s recent travels to Hong Kong, Macau, Dubai and Tokyo.
The exhibition title, ‘Outwards from Home’, is borrowed from a book written by the artist’s grandfather Kenneth Watts, which recounts the phenomenon of urbanization in Britain and Asia against a backdrop of change in the global, political and economic climate. Watts draws on almost half a century’s experience with the United Nations Development Programmes to make a strong plea for the organization. As a personal odyssey, it reflects encounters with men and women throughout the world. Leighton’s new works hold a similar resonance, moving seamlessly between global commentary, an individual’s path through the city, and by way of a homage to his grandfather, his own personal ancestry – he looks outwards and returns to home.
