The artist

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 city’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 “Cityshrinker”. 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

“A successful image will always depend on its theme, and on the technical power of the image -- the light, forms, colours – but it must also have charisma.”

BEN THOMAS

About the artwork

Ben Thomas is particularly interested in representing heavily frequented parts of Melbourne from high angles overlooking the landscape. Taken from distanciated and elevated viewpoints (the tops of buildings, or from a helicopter), his photographs are reworked in postproduction. He thus creates new points of view that resemble models. However, spectators discover real subjects in his images, captured to scale each time. The figures look like figurines, like actors in a fully operational virtual world. Similarly, the locations shot seem both strange and familiar to us. Designed to disturb the spectator?s gaze by removing the barriers between fiction and reality, this technique of distanciation similar to ?tilt shift? provides an original and playful view of the city. The attractive colours and bright lights accentuate this unreal aspect of the photographs, close to the aesthetic of certain video games providing the illusion of a virtual world.

DAMIEN DUFRESNE

As Damien Dufresne says himself: "I let my hands do the talking". His approach is totally new in that it's at the crossroads of makeup, body art, artistic direction and photography. The resulting complexity, technicality and beauty are impressive. Damien Dufresne, a make-up arti...

ALFREDO SANCHEZ

Alfredo Sanchez was not predestined for photography. Born in Mexico in 1954, he studied law and took up a career in the private sector. “My free time was spent playing tennis, horse riding, and let’s not forget my favourite pastime: photography,” he says. Much later, towards the ...

PEDRO JARQUE KREBS

Ferocious beauties isolated from all context, as though they had been captured in their most secret intimacy, this is the remarkable artistic gesture of Peruvian photographer Pedro Jarque Krebs, restoring to the animals some of their stolen dignity. After studying philosophy at t...
