Tom Baas (1979) is a visual artist based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. After his study at the Photography Academy Amsterdam (1999-2003) and the Gerrit Rietveld Art Academy (2004-2007) he started working as an applied photographer and filmmaker in 2007. Besides his commercial work he makes photomontage artworks.
His photomontages are build up out of dozens of images that where inspired by news topics, books and everyday amazement. Tom has been collecting digital images for years. Often these images are meaningless or even boring on itself but when you start combining them suddenly interesting things are happening. Stories are being formed while associating the images with others and piling them up to a new work.
