Specializing in mountain photography since 2010, Thomas Crauwels (b. 1983) has quickly become a significant contemporary landscape photographer. His inspiration has guided him to the tall peaks of the valleys of Zermatt, Saas-Fee, Anniviers, Hérens, Bagnes, and Chamonix. Crauwel’s fascination with the world of minerals and the ice of high mountains is prevalent throughout his work. Succeeding in the footsteps of the Alpine painters of the 18th and 19th centuries, Crauwels continues to immortalize the memories of the constantly-changing Alps. He carries to mountain photography an aesthetic quality until now supplanted by the required figurative aspect needed to reveal the majesty of the Alps to a broad public. His black and white photographs of the Alps have been mainly celebrated for their exploration of atmospheres, textures, and lights, particularly of the high mountains of the alps.
His works, available in limited editions, have been awarded numerous prizes, such as the Memorial Maria Luisa 2014 or MontPhoto 2017, and have been regularly exhibited across Europe.
