La route de Marrakesh - Thomas L-B
Our dear friend Thomas Laberge Brière has been making great strides in his budding “secondary” career as an art photographer. His widening interests are pushing beyond his recognizable style, broadening his scope and focusing his vision. I’m happy and proud that some of his recent photographs of Morocco will be on our exhibition wall for the next several weeks.
Thomas successfully stayed away from clichés that seem to inevitably emerge when depicting North African locales as tourist destinations. Instead, he produced a thoughtful study of towns, villages and their inhabitants; a collection of photographs that are insightful, respectful and at times, mysterious and reverential. This is a voyage through time, and what better medium to use for this magnum opus than his choice of Kodak Portra film.
