Thomas Speck, born in Germany, currently lives and works in Paris, France. Grown up in a tri-border region between the Black Forest in Germany, the Vosges Mountains in France, and Basel in Switzerland he has always been inspired by the contrast of international cities and nature. In his photography he seeks to express visually the emotions of a city or of a rural region so that the spectator feels connected to the place. If it is about elegance, aesthetic beauty, pureness, etc. each series has a unique retouch including corresponding unique tones and color palette to live up to it. While he has a PhD in science he has studied photography as an autodidact through online mentoring and intensive practice. His work has been published in Digital Photographer Magazine issues 233, 238, 250, 265 and Black & White magazine issue 161. He has an upcoming exhibition at the Art Shopping, Carrousel du Louvre, Paris, October 20 to 22 where he showcases his awarded work.
