02 · TIM FLACH · BRIDGING THE DIVIDE BETWEEN ANIMALS AND HUMANS THROUGH IMAGERY

March 13, 2018

Tim Flach is a world-renowned photographer. His body of work, which includes 5 published books (Endangered 2017, Evolution, 2013, More than Human, 2012, Dogs Gods, 2010 and Equus, 2008), focuses on a wide variety of animal species but is united by a distinctive style that is derived from his concerns with anthropomorphism and anthropocentrism. His interests lie in the way humans shape animals, and shape their meaning. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Norwich University of the Arts in 2013. His latest project, Endangered, showcases a selection of species that are on or near the brink of extinction.

In this episode, we had the opportunity to talk with one of the most fascinating animal photographers in the world today. Recorded onsite in Tim's studio in Shoreditch London, we covered a range of topics including Tim's journey to becoming a self sustaining photographer; why he defines himself as an animal photographer and not as a wildlife photographer; what his favorite and toughest animal subjects in his career have been; the role art plays in communicating the challenges of our generation and how we can reconnect people with nature.
