Thomas Michael Alleman


Sunshine & Noir: Holga Photographs of Los Angeles and New York




Thomas Michael Alleman uses a plastic camera called a Holga, often referred to as a “toy camera.” The lens is low grade plastic, resulting in a soft focus with heavy vignetting, creating an arty, informal and surreal feel to his photographs. Mr. Alleman was born (1958) and raised in Detroit. After college he began a 15 year career as a newspaper photographer. In 1995, he was named California Newspaper Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographer’s Association, and in 1996, he was named the Los Angeles Newspaper Photographer of the Year. He is now a magazine freelancer and has been published in many national magazines.


His excellent ink pigment prints are available in three sizes. Seven inch square images printed on 11 x 8½ inch paper sell for $400.00. Eleven inch square images printed on 17 x 13 inch paper sell for $650.00. Eighteen inch square images printed on 24 x 20 inch paper sell for $900.00.
