About the Author

Believing there is a strong cultural value in the documentation of the past, Shane Thoms focus's solely on the abandoned space, visually capturing the remaining traces of human emotion that linger before the process of urban evolution erases them completely. Shooting within a carefully considered landscape format, Shane Thoms's photographic style presents a fictionalized, cinematic stage-like realm by which the observer can contemplate ideas on the constructed human world. More than just visuals of decayed environments, these images become thought provoking mediums that raise questions not only regarding our past, but also our present and future states. Through these photographs, ideas on population, space, economy, infrastructure and environment are pushed forward via a narrative that speaks volumes regarding the human condition. Along with this, the observer also has the opportunity to embark on a voyeuristic journey into the shadows of the forgotten urban environment, gaining an intimate glimpse into a secret, mysterious and sometimes bizarre world. As featured on CNN, The Business Insider, Huffington Post, Daily Mail, Messy Nessy Chic, So Bad So Good, Aplus, la repubblica, Viral Nova, Daily Best, The Weather Channel etc, this work is a visual documentation of the inevitable human destiny. *Exhibits: 'Prypiat', January to February 2013, 'Cesium 137', August 2013 *Awards: 2014 Best Architectural Image, Centre for Contemporary Photography Salon for White Found in Haikyo **Bachelor of Design, Vis Comm, (photography major), Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
