Tom Evangelidis grew up along the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia. He made his debut as a fashion photographer in London in the early 1990s before returning to Sydney to work in the television and theatre industries.

Evangelidis then shifted his focus to interior design and lifestyle photography, simultaneously travellingthe world to pursue his passion for architecture. The result was three exhibitions in Sydney titled Prague Architectural Portraits (1999), 'CasaParticular' (2003) and 'Lost in Hanoi' (2004), which document the diversity of architectural styles in the Czech Republic, Cuba and Vietnam. Evangelidis then published 'Façade' (2008) which included four additional photographic journeys through Russia, Romania, Turkey and Bulgaria. 

Critics have praised Evangelidis for his “technical brilliance and subtle eye” and his “entrancing scale, colour and texture”. His evolution as a photographer is accented by his innate appreciation for beauty, particularly beauty unveiled in unexpected locations. Evangelidis’ unique understanding of people, objects, antiques, music, faces and places, collectively lend an air of ‘painterly’ sophistication to his work.

In 2013 Evangelidis created Black Eye Gallery which represents some of Australia's best image makers and soon became Australia's premier gallery for contemporary fine art photography. Evangelidis was selected to show at Paris Photo LA in 2015, which was the first time his work was seen internationally. His work was chosen by the fairs directors as a stand out for the fair, culminating in much attention from collectors and the media. Tom has also sat on judging panels/portfolio reviews for numerous local and international bodies, including the ACP, Sun Studios, T.I.N.A prize and Dodho Magazine.

Evangelidis continues to work on international and local projects and is currently Sydney based.
