Designers Tom Vack
Tom Vack is an American photographer, born in Chicago, where he studied Architecture and Design at the University of Illinois Chicago Circle untill he decided to devote himself to photography, becoming one of the most renowned design photographer in the world. In the middle Eighties he met Michele De Lucchi and Philippe Starck and started with them a long and productive collaboration.
In 1987 he moved to Europe, living in Italy and Germany, working as well with renowned designers and architects such as Ingo Maurer, Ron Arad, Marc Newson, Luigi Colani, Alessandro Mendini, Andrea Branzi and Toshi Kita.
Over the past decade, Vack has opened his professional path to different developments, expanding his photographic research and conveying them towards varied experiments. The "OpenEye" project collects this new part of Vack's activity, which in parallel with the usual design photography work, transmits a new vision of reality, through a photographic eye that intends to freely capture its surroundings, and then elaborate upon the images, returning them in new forms.
