Ben Thomas is a photographer and visual artist born in Adelaide,
now living in Melbourne, Australia

Ben's work has centered around the cities and urban spaces that
we live in. His "Cityshrinker" series (2007) was internationally
acclaimed and considered to be one of the pioneering projects
exploring the now popular tilt-shift technique. Ben's study of
urban spaces continued with "Accession" (2012) utilising mirror
and kaleidoscopic techniques to highlight how repeating patterns
and objects act as the basis of our our urban surroundings. Most
recently Ben has developed his latest series "Chroma" (2015) and
"Chroma II (2016), a further deconstruction of cities and urban
areas with a primary focus of the use of colour and flatness that
poses questions of how society defines the places in which we live.
