Accession: kaleidoscopic city series by Ben Thomas
Accession is the latest kaleidoscopic photo series from Ben Thomas and was shot in New York, Tokyo and Melbourne. It’ll be exhibiting during 2014. Of the work, Thomas says: ‘The series what shot with various lens on a Canon 5d mark iii body. Available light was used for each of the images. Most of the photos were shot from high vantage points- either rooftops of buildings or from a doorless helicopter, strapped in! A lot of time was spent fine tuning the perspective of the images as well as creating new geometric patterns at the join point of each image’.
Ben Thomas’s first book, Tiny Tokyo (Chronicle Books) is set to be released March 2014.
