For over twenty-five years Tom Chambers has been telling stories through photomontages. These stunning images, blending the everyday with the fantastic, are inspired largely by travel in places as varied as American west, New England, Mexico, Italy, and Iceland. Chambers uses photomontage to present unspoken stories that illustrate fleeting moments in time and are known for being extremely evocative, eliciting feelings ranging from tranquility to turbulence—and all the points in between. Through his intentional use of magical realism, Chamber’s photomontages look believable, but improbable. Each, in fact, has been carefully constructed, using both planned images and ones that unexpectedly enhance the story he wishes to tell. Through such techniques Chambers moves beyond documentation of the present in order to fuse reality and fantasy into musings about the possibilities of the future.
 
Hearts and Bones is the first comprehensive collection of Chambers's work. More than one hundred color photomontages are included in this volume, spanning his entire career.
