If John Cage and Freddy Krueger had a baby:

While Remi Thornton plays down the fact that his images are highly conceptual, I'm not entirely buying it. His work is extremely simple, but it's complexity lies in its simplicity. It's the minimal content that makes what does appear in his imagery that much more important. He also uses dramatic lighting to illuminate his subjects in an eerily bright glow, as if you've pointed a spotlight into the dark to see what's out there. And of course, I'm a sucker for both the eery and the minimal....p.s: since this was originally posted, Remi has informed me that all lighting is shot as found! Even more incredible.
