About Tommy Mintz

I'm a perpetual tourist in my home town. I'm a street photographer who needs to know where the closest bathroom is at all times.

Tommy studied photography and architecture at Sarah Lawrence College. He graduated from the Queens College MFA program in 2005. He has shown work at, among other places, the Austin Museum of Digital Art and the Smithsonians Flushing Town Hall in Queens. Currently, Tommy is working on a program to automate photo collages, and a wallet sized map of the publicly accessible toilets in Manhattan.
