Tom Wood is a photographer that has been taking pictures for over 40 years, with most of his best work being of Liverpool and Merseyside. Kids on the street began to know him and he became know as 'photo man'. With most of his photographs being captured in Liverpool and Merseyside, I would have thought he was from those area's, but he was born in Mayo in the west of Ireland. Wood has returned to back to Ireland to finish work on a book about landscapes.

He began capturing photographs 1978 for over 20 years. From 1989 Wood decided to capture photographs in colour. He says "Once you start thinking about it's gone" when talking about capturing candid photographs.
He finds fascination out of the usual everyday things we see and converts it into a piece of art through a photograph.
