Thom Bridge is a Swedish British artist, organiser and curator whose photographic practice explores the languages, uses and formats of photography as a technology within the arts, culture and the everyday. Through print-making, sculpture and installation his work closely scrutinises the mechanics and multiplicities inherent in and inherited by photography. In the on-going collaboration T. Bridge, he works with his identical twin Theo to challenge the twin as a photographic trope.

Thom Bridge is the founder and coordinator of Field/s, a forum of twelve artists, photographers and curators that are joined every month by an invited guest. Set up in 2017 with funding Bridge was awarded by Artquest in partnership with The Photographers' Gallery, Field/s aims to encourage transnational, intergenerational and cross-disciplinary discussions between arts professionals and is now hosted by Gasworks. Field/s will present its first public presentation in November at Sluice HQ in London in the shape of an exhibition and public programme curated by Bridge. Previous guests to the forum have included Swedish artist Lotta Antonsson, Open Eye Gallery curator Thomas Dukes, British artist and curator Tom Lovelace, British artist Sarah Pickering, Assistant Curator in Photography at Tate Emma Lewis, Norwegian photographer and writer Nina Strand, editor-in-chief of the photography journal Objektiv, and American artist Sonja Thomsen.
