Tom Kidd

Tom Kidd has worked as a newspaper photographer for 25 years and is now a helicopter pilot living in Dunbar. He studied photography at the Polytechnic of Central London and Napier College, Edinburgh. His work has been acquired for the collections of the Scottish Arts Council and the V&A. On exhibit at FLOW Photofest are his never before seen photographs from Aberlour House School, where he worked as a photographer-in-residence in the late 1970’s. These images reveal a fascinating look at Boarding School life by a photographer with an acutely discerning eye for the decisive moment, and clear empathy and affection for the children and adults whose lives he was documenting at such close quarters.
