​If you know what you want and you know your deepest motives, it provides a whole new perspective. I want to encourage a contribution to myself and towards others. Because of that I started to explore unknown paths. Being vulnerable is the fastest way to grow as a human being. My soul was calling me to order. I needed to separate fantasy from day-to-day emotions. As a matter of fact, the birth of Emofragmator. 

Thoelen's fine-art photography portrays a fantasy experience through 'a chain in wonder'.

His elaborate compositions consist of emotional shots that depict the heat of the moment in a narrative story.  As Emofragmator he launched the MASKERAMI series.

A new media art project guided by the design fashions of the period. Eye-catchers for inspirers with personality and identity in every sense of the word. 

Winner of the Global Art Agency Award at the International Amsterdam Art Fair 2019 with a striking display, incredible story (RANDOM FOMO), creativity and presence at the fair.

Typical is boring

Some people see me as a maniac, but that’s not quite right.

a.k.a. 'The EMOFRAGMATOR' I translate the emotion of a scene into one shot. 

Call it a highly sensitive navigator in fantasy with an emotional diaphragm. 

In fact, as a self-made director, I transform ordinary situations into unique moments.
