Portraits by Thomas Dozol

Thomas Dozol is a considered, charming French guy who spends his time between New York, Paris and Athens, Georgia, and a talented emerging photographer who has, for his New York City debut exhibition, managed to capture people in the raw, private and unprepared. The combination of vulnerability and natural beauty, informed by his use of light to create an intimate experience is powerful - powerful as much for the sheer beauty as for what it says about public and private identity in a world increasingly obsessed with image. We sat down together over Campari and sodas and chatted about his art, relationships and prefernece for watching over being watched.
