One can only wonder what Remi Thornton would be doing if his first Digital SLR had been delivered during daylight hours. But because UPS dropped by after dark, the earliest exposures captured by Thornton were necessarily long ones. Since that fateful night he has embraced the medium and technique. Using only atmospheric street lighting, he has developed a style that some have referred to as “...the epitome of proper creepy.”


Remi’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States, and his photographs have been highly collected by private and public collections including Fidelity Investments. He is currently represented by Gallery Kayafas in Boston. Thornton lives in Melrose, Massachusetts, a small suburb just north of Boston, with his wife and a heavily photographed Chihuahua/Pug mix named Winnie Cooper.
