A beautiful and dignified actress, Diane Lane was the cover subject of Interview magazine in 1981, a time that I feel marks the 'beginning' of our 'modern era'. Many images and artifacts from that time do not look as 'dated' as just a few years prior. The innovators of our modern wonders were young people already at work at changing the world at that time. I'm not nostalgic for the '80s in any way, but in some ways the '80s are still here. Just because society tends to categorize in 10 year decades doesn't mean that society really evolves that way.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
