Born April 1958 in United Kingdom, Tim Flack is a London-based photographer, artist and director, 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. He is the author of the books Endangered, Evolution, Equus, Dogs Gods, and More Than Human.
Over the past decade, Flach’s work has increasingly focused on animals, ranging widely across species but 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. Whether genetically, as with the featherless chicken, or with the symbolism that gives a special significance to a dove but dismisses a London pigeon as a flying rat. His images aim to promote discussion and encourage debate.
Tim Flach has three major bodies of work, concerning different subject (Equus, focusing on the horse, Dogs Gods, on canines, and More Than Human, a broad exploration of the world’s species), and has published four books; Evolution, 2013, More than Human, 2012, Dogs Gods, 2010 and Equus, 2008.
