Simon Pais Thomas Simon Pais Thomas

There’s no question that photographer Simon Pais Thomas takes beautiful pictures. They are all sharp and emotional but seem to fall into two categories. There are those pictures that look like they came straight out of Vogue and have little more depth to them than the fashion they depict and those like the one above, which is not only thought-provoking but also elicits a certain amount of wonder about how the artist was even able to capture such an image.

The first few photos in the gallery are in the same vein as the one above. It seems to be a surreal take on themes of absence, escape, and, to a certain extent, dysfunction. In other photographs the artist utilizes a split pane to juxtapose variants of the same theme in one piece of work.

I had a lot of appreciation for one particular series that can currently be found on his website. Entitled “The Last Letter,” it is composed of five or six photographs that seem to be telling at least part of a story. I always enjoy art that lends itself to interpretation, even if there isn’t necessarily anything to interpret. Of all the work that is currently displayed on the site, this is the series that I was most able to admire.

The rest of them, for better or worse, are photo essays on fashion. Some are more striking than others. The most striking are those whose subjects’ faces are front and center. I find that the photographs are much more powerful when the models have emotions strong enough to match their attire.

Most of the work currently on the site, with the exception of “The Last Letter,” falls into this last category. To explore some of Thomas’s earlier (or at least different) work, you should really google him. The pictures are worth a look.
