Tom Lacoste — aka Thoum — describes himself as a "young self-made photographer" who "began taking pictures while i was juggling fire with some friends." Looking at his amazing photos, he seems to me like a sorcerer with fire powers.
He perfected his art until he reached the awesomeness you can see in these pictures. His portraits of fire and humans — using torches and fire breathing techniques — are truly beautiful (and they are for sale).
