FEATURED ARTIST: Thomas Albdorf
Despite working with various media, Thomas Albdorf (b. 1982, Linz, Upper Austria) focuses primarily on photography and sculpture in his work – in particular, the intersection area between both practices, their shifting perceptions and their decontextualization caused by internet distribution. After working for several years as a Graphic Designer and Art Director, he studied Transmediale Kunst at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, where he graduated in 2013. Albdorf was recently selected as one of British Journal of Photography’s Ones to Watch for 2014. His work has been exhibited throughout galleries in Austria, Germany, Sweden, UK & the United States, and Albdorf has been featured / interviewed in magazines and blogs such as British Journal of Photography, It‘s Nice That, Phaidon UK, Computer Arts Magazine, Tell Mum Everything is Okay, A5 Magazine, Eloquence Magazine, Aint Bad, Mossless and many more. He currently lives and works in Vienna, Austria, and is working on his first publication with Danish publisher Lodret Vandret.
