Denmark-born, New York-based Thomas Bangsted is a landscape photographer whose work evokes the sublime in nature. Bangsted’s photographs evolve through a drawn out process, often requiring years to realize single pieces. He takes images of places and objects over extended periods of time. The aim of layering numerous images is to appreciate a new understanding of place – that which we see at any moment is always incomplete.

Bangsted’s images have a sense of the uncanny; something isn’t quite right. Whether it is the precarious tilt of a ship’s masthead or an icy reflection in the water, the viewer is forced to question what is seen and by extension what they ever see. We are presented with such a rich visual and beautiful palette and always we seem to enter in the midst of a profoundly interesting narrative and we are left to fill in the before and after.

Thomas Bangsted (b. 1976, Denmark) received a MFA in Photography from Yale University, School of Art in 2007. Bangsted has had numerous solo shows in Denmark including Brandts 13 (2015), Galleri Tom Christoffersen (2010) and Galleri Hornbaek (2007). Group exhibits include Tang Museum, NY (2016), The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark (2016), The Metropolitan Museum of New York (2015), Knoxville Museum of Art, TN (2015), Bronx Museum of the Arts (2011), the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY, The Prague Biennial (2009) and the New York Photo Festival (2008). His work is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of New York and was included in their 2015 exhibition of recent acquisitions and reviewed in The New York Times. Bangsted is represented by MARC STRAUS, New York and Galleri Tom Christoffersen, Denmark.
