2016

About

The reflection of this nude Bel Ami model appears in a mirror of an interior in Capetown, South Africa. This impression is #1 of an edition of 10. It is printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth paper that meets the highest industry standards regarding density, color gamut, color graduation and image sharpness. This white 100% rag paper guarantees archival standards. Benno Thoma was born in the university city of Maastricht on the southern tip of the Netherlands in November, 1956. He strives to stimulate our senses in his photographs and to move his audience to touch, feel and experience his vision. Thoma's photographs show us the beauty in each aspect of the composition. There is a tactile feel to his material, a positive energy that comes from the light that gives nuance to the subtle colors created. Arranged together with the beauty and dignity of the human body his technique invites us to become one with the scene. He travels around the world to create his images and strives to bathe his subjects in the natural light of that locale. Above all he captures the sense of place, its uniqueness -- cultural, natural or architectural. His newest photographs manipulate the element of water and light to express his vision of the male body – in both its innocence and vulnerability. Thoma uses movement and composition to capture the beauty of the body. The German publishing house of Bruno Gmunder has published five monographs of the work of Thoma. His photographs chronicle the luxurious properties of the Kempinski Hotel Group, the beautiful young actors of Bel Ami and everyday people wherever he travels. Whatever his subject, Benno Thoma’s photos are always a temptation for the senses.
