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.

    Hi, maybe i’m being a off topic here, but I was browsing your site and it looks exceptional. I’m writing a blog and trying to make it look neat, but everytime I touch it I mess something up. Did you design the blog yourself? Could someone with little experience do it, and add updates without messing it up? Anyways, good information on here, very informative.

    Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

    Awesome post, thanks for sharing the info. It’s not too often that you surf into a post where the writer knows what they are blogging about. Grammar and spelling are precise as well, only problem I seemed to have was loading up the site, seemed slow. Looks like other folks had the same trouble?

    Hey – nice blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

  • burgerking nutrition

    Great blog you have here. Many websites like yours cover subjects that aren’t found in magazines. I don’t know how we got on 10 years ago with just magazines and newspapers.

  • horde leveling guide

    lol a couple of the comments bloggers write are just silly and unrelated, sometimes i wonder whether they at all read the post before writing or whether they merely look at the subject of the post and write the very first thought that comes to their minds. But it is nice to find a fresh commentary every now and then in contrast to the exact same, traditional blog garbage which I oftentimes notice on the blogs. Cheers
