In this fusion of two series, Thomas explores a common theme: the transformative power of light displacing the darkness. Light embodies wisdom, healing and growth in humanity's passage from the dark to light ages.
Evading conventional techniques, Thomas describes his work as lens-based digitally manipulated photography that is abstract yet historically factual. He has devised a novel approach to established photographic practices. Seeking to produce unique and unexplored paths in making images, he wishes to show never-imagined microcosms from his photographic documentation. His seminal style of abstraction provides a personalized expression of our progression through history.
“Photographs are a way of imprisoning reality...One can't possess reality, one can possess images--one can't possess the present but one can possess the past.”
― Susan Sontag
My main goal is to tell a story with a message that is universal, relatable and shareable. Each of my series has a specific aesthetic and mood. The magic happens in the interaction between the viewer and the photographer.
Thomas Brasch (B.A., B.Ed., MBA) has devoted twenty-five years to education. However, his
passion for photography drives his creative expression. Completely self-taught in the art, he is able to showcase his perceptions of beauty, turning the real into the surreal.
