Thibault Brunet (FR, 1982) has defined himself as a photographer of the virtual. His work plays with the codified genres in photography to question our relationship to virtuality in a society where reality as a whole is being digitalized. Shortly after graduating in 2008, he distinguished himself with outstanding series based on video games. For several years, he has travelled through virtual worlds looking for landscapes and faces (Landscapes, First person shooter, Vice City series) and architectures (Typologie du virtuel). His latest series, created in partnership with Leica Geosystem, is Territoires circonscrits, which virtualizes real landscapes.
Brunet graduated from the ENSBA Nîmes. Since 2010, he has distinguished himself with a series which plays with the codified genres in photography, which earned him several prizes: Finalist Aperture Prize, FOAM Talent 2013, Audience Award Sciences-Po for contemporary art, Art-Collector Prize at Jeune Création, Winner of Carte blanche PMU 2014, and Photo London Residency award 2016.
