Thomas Winz grew up in Southern Germany.
While working on a degree in social work, he started taking workshops in Photography; as he got more involved in Photography, he decided to attend the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco.
At the Art Institute, he started using large format cameras focusing on the American Landscape and Urban scenes. After graduating with an MFA, he stayed with the large format camera, mostly 6X17.
Mainly using digital cameras now, he continues using mostly the panoramic format, describing his sense of space within the place.
The recent work is quite abstract and explores the interaction between chaos and structure.
His work is in private collections and has been exhibited in Germany and the US.
