In his work series 90 Cans Christopher Thomas captures ordinary objects, rusted, decaying metal drinking cans. Using colour photography Thomas reveals the beauty of the 90 Cans by showing their delicate colours. Like single portraits they are presented in subdued and enticing tones before a black background. Christopher Thomas obsessively picked up cans from the streets during his trips around the world over the last 15 years. His action resembles an inventory and typologisation. With almost an archaeological look at the visible remains of everyday objects, Christopher Thomas preserves beauty, which reveals itself in the decay.
