Thomas Alan Cronk,
a native of Minnesota, received a gift of a Kodak StarmiteTM camera at the age of 8 and fell in love with photography after shooting just one roll. After trying his hand at street photography some years later in New York, he returned to the Midwest and enrolled at the University of Minnesota. After graduation, Tom hit the road again with his camera- this time in the southwest and Mexico. 


He had his first gallery show at the age of 22 and has been continually showing and creating new work all over the world since that time. Mr. Cronk has been a featured artist at the Santa Monica Museum of Art "Incognito" group show for the past two years and his most recent one-man show, Light and Line, appeared at Artworks Gallery in Austin, Texas. Mr. Cronk counts artists Avedon, Sander, Mondrian, Sargent and Arkansas folk photographer Mike Disfarmer as major influences.
