Fetish, pin-up, gothic, with common inspirations with Markus J Ranum, Thomas van de Sheck is the kind of guy I dreamt to discover, deeply. He belongs his universe, playing with the rules. I'm always smiling when I watch his photos, the "second degré" that I love.
Very coloured, well composed, many times models on deep white, all the ingredients are there to make me happy.
You see it, I love his works.
