Shadows in the box is the the exploration of the life and times of mercurial existentialist photographer, Thomas Clark.
As an artist, Thomas Clark started his career at eleven years old when his mother, Gloria Clark, offered him an eight millimeter movie camera as a birthday present. From the steps of his St Albans House, home of many cultural american icons, including John Coltrane, Fats Waller and Ella Fitzgerald, to name a few, to the border of Nepal and India more than forty years later, this amazing photographer graced the streets of the world with an uncanny sense for still images in motion. Streets after streets, in New York, in San Francisco, in LA, in Warsaw and more, Thomas roamed within an idea: What if these faces, encounters, scenes and places where linked together by an invisible force, that primal force in the universe, a force called love? As he gained confidence with the technique, the camera became an extension of his mind, heart and soul, as if it was capturing the elusive magic of the canvas of life itself.
