Photographers we need to see more of - Julian Thomas

The first in what will hopefully be a series on photographers who - imo - definitely deserve more attention.

Julian Thomas makes photographs of the Mediterranean urban/suburban environment with a deceptive ease. As well as using the (colour) square format to full advantage, he is also experimenting with diptychs and triptych like constructions and trying to break out of the frame that's so inherent to photography.

I've always joked that if I ever win the lottery big time, then Julian will be in line for the first (and possibly only) Underappreciated Exiled Brit Photographer Grant.
