THE SEWELL ARCHIVE

Tom Sewell oversees the multi-media art studio in Maui with over 100,000 images and archival films. The Archive contains extensive documentation of the artists, architecture and eccentrics of Venice, Los Angeles, and Santa Monica in the 1960's, 70's, and 80's. The Archive is currently working to scan and digitize the countless negatives and slides from Tom's early California days. New photographic gems are unearthed every day - many of which have never been seen before. The Archive continues to breathe and grow, with every negative scanned.
