Art Description

Photography: Lenticular, Color, LED Illuminted on Other.

In a recent series of works, shown in distinctive international art fairs, Bjoern Thomas
focuses his lenses on an underground group of modern society, that is, the gangsters. He
photographs released prisoners from Los Angeles correctional facilities not in their prison cells, but in
expressive situations that explore the complexities of criminal actions; rather than voicing their
injustice and deviant behaviors. As STEVEN G. BRANDL maintains, “Gangsters, in particular, became
larger than life, capturing the imagination of millions of Americans. Gangsters like ‘‘Machine Gun’’
Kelly, Al Capone, ‘‘Ma’’ Barker, and others became notorious heroes. Watch
