"I like to think my cameras have ears, and to listen with my eyes"
Tom Fecht

Tom Fecht launched his artistic career in 1992 at Jan Hoet’s documenta IX. In the late 1990s, he embraced photography as his preferred medium. Since then, he has produced an extensive body of landscape and portrait work. In recent years he became in particular known for his minimalist seascapes and night photography focusing phenomena invisible to the naked eye.

He studied cybernetics, engineering, and art history at Columbia University in New York and Technische Universität Berlin. As a young engineer, Fecht was involved in developing fax machines and computer-based imaging at IBM. In the 1970s, Fecht founded the gallery and publishing company Elefanten Press in Berlin. During the next two decades, Fecht worked as a gallerist, publisher, and editor focused on documentary and artistic photography. Fecht enjoys exploring photography as a tool in art, design, and scientic research; he also teaches at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College in London.

As of 2012 his photographs are limited to one unique vintage print. His work is regularly exhibited at TEFAF Maastricht and has featured in numerous museum exhibitions and collections, including: Neue Nationalgalerie and Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin; Hamburger Kunsthalle, Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bonn; Royal College of Art, London; Helmhaus Zurich; and MuCEM Marseille.
