Thomas is a Toronto photographer who creates abstract visualizations of the images he takes on his travels. In this series, he creates luminous and iridescent mandalas whose goal is to give the power to heal. They show a way to find beauty and hope in the trench of troubled sadness. These images are his response to the madness and chaos in our world, as well as a way to pay tribute to the victims of useless hate and violence.
Each piece is titled by the city and the date of the event. It is up to the viewer to discover the connections.
Thomas est un photographe torontois qui crée des visualizations abstraits des images qu’il a prises pendant ses voyages. Dans cette série, il a créé des mandalas lumineux et iridescents qui ont comme but, la puissance de guérir. Ils nous montrent un façon de retrouver la beauté et l’espoir dans la tranchée d’une tristesse troublée. Ces images sont sa réponse a la folie et le chaos dans notre monde, aussi bien qu’un façon de rendre hommages aux victimes de la haine et de la violence, tous les deux inutiles.
This series made its debut during Contact 2018, in Toronto. Since 2015, he has been developing and refining his technique. His process includes researching incidents and scouting the cities to find an appropriate source image. In the studio, hours are dedicated to editing and manipulating to achieve the final image.
Thomas seeks to donate an Artist Proof of each image to the respective organizations that are creating memorials for these events.
