Tommy Ingberg is a photographer and visual artist, born 1980 in Sweden. He works with photography and digital image editing, creating minimalistic and self-reflecting surreal photo montages dealing with human nature, feelings and thoughts.
During the last couple of years he has received international recognition with his work shown in numerous publications and receiving awards and honorable mentions from many different competitions including International Photography Awards, Prix De La Photographie Paris and Sony World Photography Awards. In 2012 Tommy won the Lumen Prize with his picture “Torn”.
Although artists leaves the interpretation of his work up to the viewer, he says:
“For me, surrealism is about trying to explain something abstract like a feeling or a thought, expressing the subconscious with a picture.”
His work is very personal, almost like a visual diary. Viewers can produce their own questions and answers when looking at the pictures, artists own interpretations are really irrelevant in this context.
