Raised in Sweetwater, Texas, Tom Turner was exposed at an early age to the stark landscape of the western part of the state. He became fascinated with the photographic image during his undergraduate studies at McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. While attending the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, Turner began exploring the concept of investigation though the photographic image. He completed his education in California and ventured back to Texas, where he worked in the newspaper publishing industry for four years before obtaining an M.F.A. in photography from Texas Tech University. Currently, Turner lives in San Antonio, where he is a resident artist and co-director of Clamp Light Artist Studios and Gallery, as well as an adjunct professor. He has a background in photojournalism and has been featured on and in the Times Magazine (London) and the Boston Globe.
