As much as people love to escape into fantasy and imagination, or even recreate it for themselves, sometimes, it is astonishing how steeped in reality these dreams are; not for Thomas Herbrich, thankfully. Instead of making these extraordinary visions seem plausible, therefore taking away their magic, Thomas Herbrich fully embraces his creativity and imagination to create crazy, unreal scenes that boggle the mind.
Hailing from Duesseldorf, Thomas Herbrich is trained as a photographer in a still life studio. After watching Stanley Kubrick's cult classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, he experienced what he describes as a "visual enlightenment" and went into the movie-making business to become a special effects technician. Realizing how little control he had over the creative process, however, Thomas Herbrich returned to his initial passion and imbued his photography with everything fantastical.
