Thomas Kane draws on symmetry, beauty and tranquility. When he composes a photograph he has a vision of the final image. Often it may contain much less than the actual scene photographed.
If anything is central to his work it is the sky. Some days he get’s a strong feeling that the light and clouds may unite to form the picture he seeks. After all, the great artist Arthur Boyd said it was the light of Australia that forced him to paint.
Collectors of his work span the world, from Spain, Ireland and Hong Kong, to offices in Collins Street, Melbourne, and Pitt Street, Sydney, as well as homes in Sydney, Melbourne, Inverloch, Wye River and elsewhere.
He has been fortunate enough to win two silver and two bronze awards in the International Loupe Awards in 2012 and two bronze awards the following year.
Kane is self-taught and through photographers he has met along the way, he has acquired skills and learned more about photography.
While he has always been fascinated by photography, a busy career limits his opportunities. Oddly, his interests were rekindled when his home was burgled in 2001 and his ancient Pentax camera was stolen. He moved to digital photography and became totally seduced.
