Born in Australia, Ben Thomas graduated from the Adelaide International School of Digital Special Effects and Animation. Since 2003, he has lived and worked in Melbourne, the capital city of South Australia, which he considers to be a constant source of inspiration for his art and the starting point of his artistic approach. The artist enjoys capturing the living areas of its residents and the cityâ€™s organisation. Armed with his lens, he thus presents a vision of Melbourne that is both unusual and playful. In 2007, he completed his first photographic series entitled â€œCityshrinkerâ€. His photographs are published and shown throughout the world, particularly in the United States, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo and of course, Melbourne. He has recently worked for major corporations such as Sony, Cake, Singapore Airlines, Penguin Books and Chronicle Books. ... See more See less
