101 Pictures is the first english language retrospective of Wood’s work, casting light on his 25 year long testament to the people of Merseyside. It includes previously unseen photographs, alongside major works such as the infamous nightclub series, Looking for Love, (1989) and from his seminal Photie Man (2005) publication.
"Many of the images that I have selected here are portraits; these are strong, albeit subtle and understated. Tom photographed whole families, groups of workers, couples and individuals, always conveying a sense of dignity and respect.” - Martin Parr
“Wood achieves an intimacy with his subject that’s at once rude and tender… loose, instinctive, and dead-on.” - Vince Alletti, The New Yorker.
