Thomas Adank is a photographer living and working in London. His practice focuses primarily on the photographic detail as a means to describe the physical and conceptual singularities of the environments he records. He studied photography at ECAL in Switzerland and obtained a Masters of Art at the Royal College of Art in London.

He has been working collaboratively with artists, architects, designers, galleries and institutions on the development of visual strategies for communicating work made in the fields of architecture, art and design. He has actively researched and developed methods of visual representation for physical work made by practitioners in these fields, thus helping define the cultural space this material occupies within the wider discussion surrounding contemporary culture.

He lectures at Camberwell College of Arts in London.
