TOM R. CHAMBERS, a Documentary Photographer and Visual Artist for over thirty years, is currently working with digital generation and manipulation as an art form under the namesake of New Directions and Pixelscapes, which begins to approach a true abstract, visual language in Digital Art.

This Minimalist approach and Its Derivatives ( Scan Series and Shift Series) have been exhibited in the U.S.A., England, Russia, the Philippines and Brazil. He has exhibited his Documentary Portraiture and Visual Arts throughout the U.S.A. and worldwide (over thirty exhibitions); and his mixed media and interactive work, Mother's 45s (a tribute to his mother and all mothers of the world), was selected through national competition (U.S.A.) for exhibition as a part of the Parents show at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, U.S.A.

American Photo magazine listed one of his Photodocumentary projects, Dyer Street Portraiture, in its Notable Exhibitions section, March, 1986 issue. And his Photodocumentary project, Descendants/350, received a Governor's Proclamation, and was accepted by the Secretary of State as a part of the Rhode Island State Archives (U.S.A.).

His Photodocumentary project, Southwest of Rusape: The Mucharambeyi Connection was officially opened by the U.S. Ambassador to Zimbabwe and accepted as a part of the United States Information Services (USIS) Archives, Harare, Zimbabwe, Africa; and his Photodocumentary project, People To People was accepted as a part of the Kumho Art Foundation Archives, Gwangju, South Korea.
