Thomas grew up in the East of France after spending 8 years in Paris. He spent a year in New York City before moving to Montreal where he now lives. The photographic world of Thomas Subtil stages timeless fictions appropriating urban semiotics of his many travel books. His work is part of a new emerging contemporary photography, where work on the aesthetics of simple and poetic image takes precedence over a “photographic reality.” It is an uninhibited photography that is constantly evolving with new digital techniques. It is a poetic and unusual approach to reality he presents, intriguing, festive and joyful. He is an architect’s dream.
