photography from the TOM’S WORLD project - 2017

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, as know as Tom of Finland (1920-1991).

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.
