With a focus on primary colours and a strong use of light, Chroma is an ongoing series by Australian photographer, Ben Thomas, that continues to pose the question of how society defines the places in which we live.

Featured previously, Ben's latest work centres around deconstructing cities and urban spaces with a focus on the use of colour and flatness. It follows his internationally acclaimed Cityshrinker series, which was considered to be one of the pioneering projects exploring the now popular tilt-shift technique.

From days at the funfair to famous street corners in New York, Sydney, Dubai, Paris and Hong Kong, Ben looks for the "architecture and place design that give cities their unique feel. A key factor was also the weather, which was critical for the treatment process."

Ben is a winner of the Hasselblad Masters 2018 and has recently completed campaigns and assignments for The New Yorker Magazine, Sony, Cake, Singapore Airlines, Penguin Books and Chronicle Books. Discover more at or follow him on Instagram @___benthomas.
