Thomas Vanoost (1982)
Thomas Vanoost is an emerging Belgian photographer living and working in Brussels. In 2002, he graduated in photography from a local fine art school, while also studying philosophy and sociology. Between 2002 and 2016, he never stopped working on personal photography projects and pursued a career in the investment industry at the same time. In 2016, he decided to devote himself to photography after he became painfully conscious of the chaotic world we live in. The results are this series ‘visions of daily chaos’. Heavily influenced by his background in philosophy, his work tries to question our relationship to reality.
My art finds its roots in ontology, the study of the nature of being, and in phenomenology, the branch of philosophy that studies the structure of perception.
Without being too technical, I’d like to give hereafter some quick words of explanation on the personal reflexion that led me to create this series of multiple exposure photographs.
