Thomas de Wouters is a Belgian photographer born in 1969. Former engineer, he is a self taught photographer. The choice of film photography define its relation to time. His work is inscribed in a social, as much as artistic, research.
After stays in Lebanon, Algeria, Morocco, Cuba, it is Maïdan’s revolutionary engagement, in 2014, which leads him to his first real reportage which will be published and exhibited in Brussels and Paris.
His second report ''Luhansk, the Forgotten'' is published in the New York Times, Life Force & 6MOIS, and displayed at the Bozar in Brussels with Magnum photographers Max Pinckers and John Vinck.
In 2016 a personal exhibition is organized in Brussels, while his third report, a trilogy on migration, is published by the Washington Post and Life Force. Thomas takes part at a new Photo Festival in Brussels alongside Sebastião Salgado and Patrick Zachman.
Thomas comes back from the DRC with a new work called “Inside Lucha” published in the NY Times.
