Tim Flach 1958
Tim Flach (born 1958, London, United Kingdom) is a London based photographer with work in several major international public collections, including the National Media Museum, UK and the Swedish Museum of Natural History. He is best known for his highly conceptual images of animals using principles of human portraiture and a vocabulary of gestures and looks which seem to echo our own and play on our predispositions and sympathies.
No animal has captured the human imagination quite like the horse, depicted in media from cave drawings thousands of years ago through countless renderings in paint, clay, ink, even film. Award-winning photographer Tim Flach’s quest to document the horse has resulted in Equus, an intensely moving look at an animal - as solitary subject and en masse, from the air and from underwater - whose history is so powerfully linked to our own. 300pp.
Since the wolf first snuck into the caves of our ancestors to take warmth from the fire, dogs have been man's constant companion. Dogs delves deep into the psyche of this enduring bond to create an exquisite study of man's best friend. 215pp.
Award-winning photographer Tim Flach has spent years enquiring into the essential bond we have with animals. Now, he presents the culmination of years of tireless, expert endeavour, an extraordinary body of work in which each image is more striking and powerful than the last. 300pp.
