Toma reclaims a very raw and simplified aesthetic, images without any post production. Shadows and obscurity being of a very high importance to him.
He starts photography at a very young age, equipped with his Rollei35 camera he documents life around him and spends very long hours in the dark room revealing his pictures. When at the end of the 90?s he starts travelling the world he very naturally shoots everythings around him, raves, squats, the alternative life of techno sound systems.
At the beginning of 2010 he starts working with musicians such as Vitalic, Jean Michel Jarre, Etienne de Crecy, Kompromat, Boys Noize? He then spends a lot of time on tour, travelling the world, taking pictures, either on stage, backstage, or in the audience : the life of an electronic musician on tour. His work has been published in magazines such as Brain Magazine, Vice, Manifesto XXI, Trax Magazine, TimeOut, etc.
Alongside this period he also works as a director of photography for several music videos such as Birds on a Wire "O Solitude" or Dom La Nena "Oiseau Sauvage".
