Tom Ridout's architectural photography is enriched by his art practice.

Tom Ridout’s photography is focused on architecture in both urban and rural places. His work deals with themes of change by documenting structures in a state of evolution or within scenes of mutability and disarray. His technical method of photography maximizes clarity and avoids the inclusion of subjective effects and distortions.
