Fragmented Realities


Belgian photographer Thomas Vanoost began a career in the investment industry. However, his academic background as a philosopher led him to question the world in which we live and work. "The idea behind this series,” he explains, "is that today, more than ever, we live in a fundamentally chaotic world. Yet in spite of this, the world around us appears to be under a reassuring illusion of stability.” To capture the essence of this feeling, Thomas creates post-production multiple exposures from a series of individual shots; all of which are taken from slightly different perspectives and focal lengths.
