About: Arnaud Thurel

aka th

I like photography for its capacity to transport ideas. I like this way to create the reality we want by choosing the frame of a photo : who could say that a photo does not represent reality ? Nobody, however everybody should... Because who is able to claim that the exact opposite tableau was not existing just a little bit on the left or on the right off the photograph at the same moment.

Archive : Bolivia in the air 2008

In: Archives · Land Portraits

This exhibition is the second I present about Bolivia. The fisrt one was about Potosi’s mine… not so positive or encouraging… I decided to show another face of this country.

Archive : Namibia on the rock ! – 2009

In: Archives · Land Portraits

This exhibition relates Namibia as you usually does not see it. I’ve been there, spent about one month going around from north to south. Many many wild animals other there of course. But there is much more to see in this “nowhere” landscape. It looks like it is the end of the world…
