THOMAS PAQUET

Thomas Paquet's work revolves around the notion of space and time. Far from the information overloads and the speed excesses of the digital realms, Thomas quietly explores with matter. He envisages photography as an art which cannot be separated from its craft. As such, film is often at the core of his creation process and it is common for him to employ alternative techniques such as Polaroid, wet collodion prints or gum bichormate printing process. But most importantly his work is an invitation to go beyond our own expectations of reality, blurring the lines between science and poetry, materiality and abstraction, objectivity and subjectivity.
