male (35) from Brussels, Belgium

Thomas Vanden Driessche was born in Leuven in 1979. Holder of a master’s degree in journalism and a master’s degree in humanitarian management, he has been working for the United Nation Development program in Morocco, for the Belgian Red Cross and for the International Committee of the Red Cross Delegation to the European Union and the NATO. Freelance photographer working for magazine such as Le Vif L’Express, Juliette & Victor, Le Soir, Le Nouvel Observateur, The Guardian, Monocle since 2010, Thomas joined Out Of Focus in February 2011 and is a nominee photographe in the french photo agency Picturetank. Strongly attached to the ‘New Documentary Tradition’, his photography is often frontal and tries to split up reality with a special emphasis on portrait. His most recent photographic series tackle Contemporary India and its fast growing economy. Thomas is also working on a long-term project on some forms of trivialization of violence in Europe. Rewarded with a ‘Parole Photographique’ price in 2009 and five PX3 awards in 2010-2011, and a ‘coup de coeur de l’ANI’ during the festival Visa pour l’image, his work has been recently displayed in Paris (MK2 Library, Gare de l’Est, Galerie Dupon, Festival Circulations), in Lille (Transphotographiques 2011) and in Brussels (Palais des Beaux-Arts, The Egg). In 2011, Thomas was invited to be a jury member of the prestigious ‘Visa d’or Humanitaire’ awards. His work is promoted and supported by the french organization Fetart promoting Young emerging european photographers. Thomas lives and works for the moment in Brussels. www.phototvdd.be www.outoffocus.be www.picturetank.com Exhibitions 2012 Marchers - Foto 8 Summer Show / London Welcome to Tata City - In Focus Vilnius / Lithuania Welcome to Tata City - Fotofestiwal Lodz / Poland Welcome to Tata City - Encontros da Imagen Braga / Portugal Welcome to Tata City - Fotografia Europea Reggio Emilia / Italy Adoration - BIP 2012 - Out of Focus project Centre wallon d’Art Contemporain / Flémal / Belgium Welcome to Tata City - Biennale #4 Photographie & Architecture La Cambre / Horta Flagey / Brussels / Belgium Welcome to Tata City - Festival Circulation’s 2012 Galerie Côté Seine & Trianon / Paris / France The Shift - Art Truc-Troc 2012 Bozar / Brussels / Belgium The Shift - ‘Worbz’ Halles St Géry / Brussels / Belgium 2011 The Shift - CAVIART 17 Galerie Caviart / Virginal / Belgium Welcome to Tata City - PX3 international Prize 2011 Espace Dupon / Paris / France The Shift - Labelle # 4 The Egg / Brussels / Belgium Welcome to Tata City - Art Truc-Troc 2011 Bozar / Brussels / Belgium Fight Club - Transphotographique 2011 Lille / France 2010 The Shift - Carte blanche ‘Parole photographique’ MK2-BNF & Gare St Lazare / Paris / France Kalaheera - PX3 international Prize 2010 show more show less
