"Hearts and Bones" is a retrospective of Tom Chambers' Photomontage Art. Foreword by Elizabeth Avedon. Unicorn Publishing Group, Chicago, USA, 2018. In English. 208 pages, 125 color illustrations, 11" x 11".Chambers uses combined photos to present unspoken stories that illustrate fleeting moments in time and are known for being extremely evocative, eliciting feelings ranging from tranquility to turbulence—and all the points in between. Through his intentional use of magical realism, Chambers' photomontages look believable, but improbable.

Photographer Tom Chambers was raised in the Amish farm country of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Tom completed a B.F.A. in 1985 from The Ringling School of Art, Sarasota, Florida majoring in graphic design with an emphasis in photography. Since 1998 Tom has exhibited photomontage images from ten photographic series both nationally and internationally in twenty three solo exhibitions and over seventy group exhibitions and art fairs. A retrospective book Hearts and Bones, containing images from his first nine series, was published by Unicorn Publishing, London, in 2018.
