Thomas’s aesthetic is graphic, linear and beautifully simple. There’s an underlying pattern or form to what Thomas sees, a calmness within chaotic surroundings.  His vision brings a graceful stillness to the heart of his photographs.  In Thomas’s still lifes and landscapes, he responds to spaces, natural and architectural, combining creativity, resourcefulness and a love of detail.  He uses his cameras as facilitators of his ideas, looking for visual humour, playing with illusion and surface.

Thomas’s projects include the film piece Pop Pop Bang, a play on the imagery of B-movies, painted onto umbrellas, in unexpected juxtaposition with British landscapes; and an imagined tour of a rock god’s house.  His latest offering, Volume of Light, comprises 469 images created with the intention to explore abstraction and authorship. VoL wants to know what you see, how you see it and begin to understand why individuals make certain choices. It takes place across a series of prints, an exhibition, a website and soon-to-be released book.
