VISUAL Q&A: Tom Petkus


Brighton-based photographer Tom Petkus, originates from the small town of Mazeikiai, Lithuania. Tom creates visual imagery that functions as a form of a poetic montage within the realm of the hypnagogic. His black and white dreamscapes are both alluring and disturbing. Tom says of his work, “I don’t take photos, I put my heart on film for all to see.”

We ask questions, Tom answers with his images…
