Robert Thomas’ background in engineering allows him to utilize the ever-changing technology of digital cameras to capture moments that mirror his artistic vision. He has learned not just to document, but also to apply, the creative aspects of composition and the freedom offered with digital image processing. This allows Robert to create a more engaging representation of his field of view.
His body of work is inspired by urban and rural landscapes, and the imagery captured in reflective surfaces, weathered and worn structures, as well as the beauty and fragility he finds in nature. Robert has documented his world since the mid-twentieth century as he has had the opportunity to travel the globe and live in Europe, Asia, and South America. He has been inspired by the religious, architectural, and cultural diversity and has been fortunate to define these through his lens. Robert’s photographic themes present a unique vision in his body of work of the decades from the 1960’s through to the present. Thomas’s Photography is currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
