Award Winning Photographer Focuses His Lens On Endangered Species


London based award-winning photographer Tim Flach specializes in highly conceptual animal portraits. Tim Flach studied Communications Design at the North East London Polytechnic and later Photography and Painted Structures at Saint Martin's School of Art. He briefly worked with Brian Worth before starting to work independently.

He captures the expressions, traits, behaviors of animals both large and small who are on the edge of disappearing due to loss of their habitat and human activity. "Tim Flach is an animal photographer with an interest in the way humans shape animals and shape their meaning while exploring the role of imagery in fostering an emotional connection. 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 published five books - 'Endangered' on species that are on the verge of extinction , 'Evolution' on primates, fish, mammals, and plants, 'More than Human' a broader account of the world’s species, 'Dogs Gods' on canines and 'Equus' on horses.

He has worked on commissions with "National Geographic", "The Sunday Times", "Cirque du Soleil", "Sony", "Hermès" and "Locarno International Film Festival". His work has been featured twice on Royal Mail stamps. Currently, he is represented by the Osborne Samuel gallery.
