In the early 1980s, Tony Gleaton left his job as a fashion photographer to travel and pursue his own photography. He began living in small villages in Mexico, Central America, and South America, photographing with a kindness and sensitivity that comes through in his beautiful black-and-white portraits. Gleaton’s elegant images capture the essence of his subjects and pay homage to their rich culture. Gleaton participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in 1991.
- Light Work was founded as an artist-run, non-profit organization in 1973. Its mission is to provide direct support to artists working in photography and related media through residencies, publications, exhibitions, and a community-access lab facility. Light Work's Fine Print Program, featuring exclusive signed prints by acclaimed photographers, represents an excellent way to further your personal art collection while supporting Light Work’s mission of offering opportunities to emerging and under-recognized artists.
