Featured here is Tom Flanagan’s self-portrait shots of various titles from “Scarred for Life” to “Innocence Lost,” which explores his emotions/turmoils with life and coming of age. The photos digitally edited with cigarette-like-burns or bodies splitting open like ripe bananas show a darker side to the artist’s portfolio and career start; currently he works in Los Angeles as portrait and fashion photographer for several clients including COCO and InStyle magazines, and has continued taking self-portraits but in a more natural manner as seen on his Instagram channel.
