Thomas Brasch (B.A, B.Ed. MBA) has devoted twenty-five years to education. However, his passion for photography drives his creative expression. Completely self-taught in the art, he is able to showcase his perceptions of beauty, turning the real into surreal. His images have been juried in multiple shows and selected for several private collections.
The Oculus series has a personal significance to Thomas beyond his desire for artistic expression. He has a chronic ocular condition known as central serous retinopathy. The Oculus series speaks to how we see and perceive beauty and how we comprehend and interpret these abstract images – drawn from natural sources that surround us. Vision can be measured; however, perception and interpretation are a very individualized experience.
