A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THE ANIMAL WORLD
Tim Flach has achieved international recognition for his innovative approach to photographing animals. He certainly is not an ordinary wildlife photographer. Instead, his works are thought provoking explorations of the connection between humans and animals. Borrowing traditional principles of portraiture, many of his animal characters appear mysteriously human, blurring the boundary between species. Bringing to life the complexity of the animal kingdom, his work ranges widely across species, united by a distinctive stylization reflecting an interest in how we better connect people to the natural world.
He has four major bodies of work concerning different subjects: Equus (2008) focusing on the horse, Dogs Gods (2010) on canines, More Than Human (2012) a broad exploration of the world’s species, and Endangered (2017) a powerful document of species on the edge of extinction.
