Tom Seymour

Writer, editor and curator based in London, with a specialism in photography, art and film.

I am a Correspondent for The Art Newspaper and an Associate Lecturer for London College of Communication. I provide editorial consultancy to Wunderman Thompson.

I write regular print features for Wallpaper*, British Journal of Photography and The Royal Photographic Society, for whom I won Writer of the Year at the PPA Awards 2020 and Specialist Writer of the Year at the PPA Scotland Awards 2019.

I have been published on more than fifty occasions by The Guardian and The Observer. I have also published for The New York Times, Financial Times, FT Weekend, BBC, The Telegraph, CNN, Independent, Foam, New Statesman, Wired and Vice amongst others. 

From 2013 to 2017, I managed a team of reporters as Digital Editor of British Journal of Photography. We won several PPA awards in that time. Previously, I was Film Editor of i-D.

In 2017, Sian Davey and I co-created Together, an amalgam of photography and writing exhibited at London’s National Portrait Gallery for a month. The work was featured in The Financial Times, The Guardian, BBC and The Evening Standard. I am currently curating an exhibition exploring Turkish resistance photography, titled Istanbul Nightworks. The show will premiere at Peckham 24 2021.
