An artist-in-residence online exhibition

9th May 2020, 10:09 pm

This online exhibition is an intimate collection of photographs and moving image works by
British artist Stuart Sandford.

Stuart Sandford was born in Sheffield, England but has lived and worked in the USA for the last 10 years. He has exhibited his work widely in galleries and museums internationally, including the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and Centre de la Photographie, Genève. His work has been featured in numerous publications and it appears in many private collections around the world including the Tom of Finland permanent collection and the Sir Elton John Photography Collection.


Your work post TOM House continues to have a dialogue with the space. How has ToFF created a platform for your brand of sexuality?

The whole ethos of Tom’s work, for me, is a celebration of queer love, sex, and desire, and I hope my work resonates with that. I feel part of TOM House and the Tom of Finland family, and can’t imagine not coming back to that amazing space and continuing a dialogue.
