Thomas barbey surreal photography - chicquero -  (10)

Thomas Barbèy grew up in Geneva, Switzerland, across the street from the “Caran D’ache” factory, the largest manufacturer of art supplies. He started drawing seriously at the age of 13, using black “encre de Chine” and gouaches for color. His influences were Philippe Druillet, Roger Dean and H.R. Giger. Today, he resides in Las Vegas and travels the world, taking his camera wherever he goes.

battle of the light“The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night…”

“…in dreams we put on the likeness of that more universal, truer, more eternal man dwelling in the darkness of primordial night.”

In_Dream_by_Virus69“The dream is often occupied with apparently very silly details, thus producing an impression of absurdity, or else it is on the surface so unintelligible as to leave us thoroughly bewildered.”

“Dreams are impartial, spontaneous products of the unconscious psyche, outside the control of the will.”

And there someone waited….lighting the way.
