MindScape is an exhibition by emerging photographer Tom McMahon. Tom graduated from his BA (Hons) Photography from Bolton University in 2023 and it was during this course, as a mature student, that he was diagnosed with dyslexia.

Tom used his graduating project to process this diagnosis through his photography, thinking back to his school life where he struggled with reading, writing and his short attention span. Revisiting the site of his now demolished school, Tom's imagery recreates the zoned out worlds that he would often find himself in, using intentional camera movement and infrared photography to convey his confusion and the mixed emotions that his past evokes.
