One of My Favorite Photographers!

Thomas Barbèy

Every single one of my images has to pass what I like to call the “So what?” test. If a combination of two or more negatives put together doesn’t touch me or have any particular meaning, I throw it out. I try to combine images and sometimes the results can be disappointing. A giant clock in the middle of the ocean can be an unusual image but if I look at it and say to myself, “So waht?” This means it isn’t good enough. If instead, an ocean liner is going down a “funnel-type” hole and I entitle it “shortcut to China,” it takes on a whole new meaning.

The visionary inspiration and imagination is not a technical skill learned in school but rather to my personal belief, a gift from God. This is the only way I can explain the source of any idea I may have during the creation process.”
