Thomas Nie's photo and video works use human movement and place to elicit the impression of the flux and episodic nature of our perception of vision.

He has developed a photographic, video and installations lexicon that, combined with his subject’s own energy, fuses to create a vivid and rhythmic sequence of images, that in both his still photographs and video projects link the perception of static with the ephemeral.

Many works are created in conjunction with contemporary dancers and performers to explore movements, space and positions. In his "changing space" projects the artist places human bodies in environments interacting with available light and the specific architectural dimensions to induce emotions.

In his exhibitions for galleries and public spaces the artist combines installations with photography and video works. Thomas has published more than 40 art books and conceives new styles for presenting his work outside the classic frame.

For his creative work Thomas has been nominated and received awards at the New York Film Festival and the European Excellence Awards. He has been ranked in the top 12 of Swiss photographers for his personal works.

He works in Basel & Zürich / Switzerland, in Berlin / Germany and in New York / USA.
