Photography linking mystery and excitement

My name is Thomas Speck, I am a fine art photographer living in Paris, France. I'm born in the south-west of Germany where three countries, Switzerland, France, and Germany meet. My career started first in science with a diploma in Chemistry and a PhD at University of Basel followed by a research position in University of Rennes. Then I've worked many years on international projects in different areas in the French industry.

I've always been close to photography in my life. First thanks to my very first Kodak camera I've got at the age of 12 but also by numerous photos I took during my free time. Around 2018 when I've started to become more involved by learning professional techniques I felt more and more drawn into photography until I've left my office job in 2020 and created "Thomas Speck Photography".

In my photography I am passionate about urban landscapes with the idea to show the beauty and the charm of the city. More specifically I'm looking to link mystery and excitement. This is done through a scene which challenges the spectator while affecting him in a positive way (e.g. by bringing back emotions about visited places or to by mesmerizing him by the unexplored). When taking the photo I try in this way to connect with the spectator by creating a link with the environment.
