Tony Ward's photographic imagery unites his primal love, erotic art, with his perennial passions for fashion, art and current events. Ward began his professional career as a corporate photographer in 1980. After working at Smithkline for four years, he opened the Tony Ward Studio: to service a variety of Fortune 500 companies and smaller business entities.
TW achieved global notoriety for his first published book on erotic photography, the controversial and highly praised OBSESSIONS in 1998. The monograph was followed by four more challenging, innovative and critically acclaimed volumes on eroticism and photography at the turn of the century. Scholars that specialize in the history and aesthetics of photography such as A.D. Coleman, Rick Wester and Reinhold Misselbeck have written illuminating essays that accompany the artist published works.
Ward's fine art photographs are widely collected, exhibited and syndicated around the world. He makes his home and studio in the historic heart of Philadelphia, but his unending quest for inspiring subjects, and new assignments compels him to divide his creative time between diverse cosmopolitan centers from Los Angeles, Miami, New York, London, Paris, Hamburg and his beloved Amsterdam.
Ward's graphic meditations on his favorite themes, fashion, portraiture, and the application of sex in media compelled him to start a web log in August of 2009 with publishing partner Dan Brouse. Editorials about TW and his work have been published in numerous international popular culture magazines, television and the internet. A partial listing includes:STERN, MAX, COSMOPOLITAN, GQ, LOADED, MEN'S HEALTH, PENTHOUSE, NERVE, PLAYBOY TV, GERMAN COSOMOPOLITAN, PENTHOUSE, RTL TV - GERMANY, TVA TELEVISION - AMSTERDAM, ABC - AMERICAN BROADCASTING GROUP, NBC - NATIONAL BROADCASTING GROUP, SALON.COM.
