"Tommy Smits is a Dutch multimedia artist. He works with photography, film and sculpture dealing with archives and ways of framing, to elevate vernacular and everyday imagery into surreal photographic objects. His photography practice searches to innovate and materialize the immaterial photograph, and hides them far away hidden in places for future archeologists to find. Tommy Smits graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague and internationally exhibited his work. Smits is the co-director of the 2020 documentary ‘Tommy & Danny in Search of the Future: different reasons for Digging a Hole’ that premiered at Noorderlicht Photofestival 2020."
