Thomas Pirot (b. 1988) is a photographer from southwest Germany who uses photography as an excuse to talk to strangers. He received his BA in Communication Design from University of Applied Sciences Mainz, Germany in 2016 after spending one semester at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.
Trying to balance intimacy and distance he regularly works as an editorial photographer for a variety of magazines.
