In a beautiful building in the heart of the Antwerp contemporary art scene, Tom Barman makes his debut as a photographer with his own solo exhibition. The building of the former X-one gallery, which earned its stripes in the 1970s, was renovated and transformed into the perfect white canvas to make Tom's photos shine. The exhibition is the first solo exhibition of Tom's photography work and shows his view on the aesthetics of the everyday. The exhibition features hand-picked photo material set over the last 10 years, from Las Vegas, Nairobi to Buenos Aires. This proves that Barman, in addition to being a musician (dEUS, TaxiWars) and film director (Anyway the Wind Blows), also has a particularly strong photographic eye.
