Tom Marshman - Move Over Darling (2010 - 2014)

Move Over Darling reveals LGBT people's stories and reminiscences about their experiences and lives, which are potent accounts of an often-overlooked part of social history. Focusing on the testimonies of the over 60s, Tom uncovers fascinating insights into a group that is sometimes invisible on the gay scene, let alone that of mainstream culture.

Tom Marshman - A Place in the Sun 2014

A Place in the Sun explores the pleasure and pain contrasted with the highs and lows of all-inclusive holidays, particularly abroad. In this project Tom investigates holidays through the filter of the seven deadly sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride). From lounging by the pool, to hedonist nights out and eating as much as you like - we see the seven sins played out during holidays, where normal codes of behaviour do not apply.  Scratch the surface of the quest for a place in the sun and you might find a world that is riddled with prejudice and xenophobia or something that can never be culturally authentic - the experience having been filtered through, and adapted for, the tourist market
