Specialized in mountain photography since 2010, Thomas Crauwels has quickly become a significant artist in the contemporary world of the Alps. His inspiration has guided him to the tall peaks of the valleys of Zermatt, Saas-Fee, Anniviers, Hérens, Bagnes as well as Chamonix. Thomas talks to us about his fascination with the world of mineral and ice of high mountains. Succeeding in the footsteps of the Alpine painters of the 18th and 19th centuries, Thomas continues to immortalise 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 reveals 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 particular to the high mountains of the alps. The encounters of the minerals and sky allow him to express emotions of grandeur and beauty, which his contemplation of the peaks and summits evoke within him. His works, available in limited editions on many supports, have been awarded numerous prizes such as the Memorial Maria Luisa 2014 or MontPhoto 2017 and have been regularly exhibited across Europe.
