Thomas Klotz is a French photographer whose first book Northscape is published by Eyd editions in 2019 LOCI collection. It was when the photographer whose dying father returned to the north of France multiplied that he began the project, as an emergency to remain active. Northscape is the photographer's pictorialist pilgrimage to his native region. Anobserver of detail, Klotz strives to capture the plastic aspect of the most ordinary places or objects and to reveal their fantastic beauty. . A bleeding wall, a corner of a blind that flies away or bushes marked by identical imprints are so many simple elements which, through the frontality of the frame and the liveliness of the colors, become unreal and phantasmagorical.
" Everything is a sign of a human floating caged in over-urbanity. We track down the residues, the rubbish, the walls left to chance by Dadaist upsurges. Between faded forms and haunted shadows we hang a forgotten crucifix that has become part of a fortuitous composition to household products. The sudden strangeness of a factory, a barrier or a wire-mesh store, banal human fabrications captured by the singular eye of Thomas Klotz forces us to look differently at the perennial vestiges of modernity. "Claire Berest
Thomas Klotz's second book EVE, the mountain and the young girl published by Eyd in 2019 is a tale about the anxieties of a father and his daughter and the difficulty of growing up. here
