Thomas Albdorf

Thomas Albdorf‘s main interest focuses on photography and sculpture – in particular, the intersection area between both practices, their shifting perceptions, the contemporary status quo of the photographic image and the decontextualization caused by internet distribution, whereas the internet functions as an important medium to distribute and communicate his work. He conceives photography not as the single act of releasing the shutter, but as chain of decisions that ranges from the object’s or subject’s staging to processing and a probably final print. Thereby the analogue negative doesn’t officiate as an enclosed photograph rather than a space of possibilities and probabilities, primarily enabled via digital post production. These alterations leave their visible mark in the final work, revealing their source as well as bringing their conditions of production up for discussion.

Thomas Albdorf was born in Linz, Upper Austria in 1982. After working for several years as a Graphic Designer and Art Director, he studied Transmediale Kunst at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, where he graduated in 2013.

In January 2014, Thomas Albdorf has been selected as one of British Journal of Photography‘s 'Ones to Watch'. His work has been exhibited throughout galleries in Austria, Germany, Sweden, UK & the United States, and he has been featured / interviewed in magazines and blogs such as the British Journal of Photography, It’s Nice That, Phaidon UK, Twin, Under the Influence, NOAH, Wallpaper*, Tell Mum Everything is Okay, A5 Magazine, Ain't Bad, Mossless and many more. 

He currently lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
