TOM’S WORLD is an exhibition and a book of photography by photographer Eric Lanuit as a tribute to the wonderful artwork of Touko Laaksonen, aka Tom of Finland (1920-1991). A limited edition to 100 numbered t-shirts is also available.
Eric Lanuit discovered Tom of Finland’s drawings at the age of thirteen and immediately became a huge admirer of his art and what it represents: he’s not only the first to have prominently depicted a unique sexuality but also a masterful artist.
Tom of Finland’s art has been a constant inspiration for Eric Lanuit, and his photographs pay him a warm tribute, taking up all the significant codes of his art to offer a respectful and sensitive perspective.
