Thomas Crauwels

A photographer passionate about the high summits of the Swiss and French Alps, Thomas specialises, since 2010, in the creation of black and white mountain images. Through his excursions and exhibitions, he has become one of the major artists of the contemporary alpine world.  Through his works, he conveys his fascination for the world of mineral and ice that is the high mountains.

The Alps, and the mountains in general, have the ability to change face almost every moment, sometimes generous, sometimes threatening, but always majestic and he wishes to highlight mountain photography in all its artistic aspects.

Each of his ascents to these incredible summits is designed to take a very specific shot, taken at the right time, with the right light, the right framing and the right settings. Not at all attached to the figurative aspect, he enhances their allure with particular atmospheres, textures and light on their magical summits to reveal the beauty of the Alps to the general public. Through the meeting of mineral and sky, also taking into account the meteorological factor, his pictures allow him to express deep emotions, the ones that inhabit him when he contemplates these summits. Today, his black and white photos of the Alps are widely recognized for their artistic aspect and for the emotions they emanate. But beyond the artistic and aesthetic aspect of his mountain photos, he feels invested in a mission for the planet. The degradation of our mountains and glaciers pushes him to use his artistic vision to follow the evolution of the Alps and to freeze these magical moments that our generation will still have the chance to admire. In this way, we will be able to pass on part of this heritage to future generations through unique photos. Taking over from the alpinist painters and photographers of the 18th and 19th centuries, he continues to immortalize the memories of the Alps, which are constantly evolving.
