Lecture summary

The notion of the way in which we see the world, and the relationships we forge between human and non-human animals, is central to photographer Tim Flach's work.                  

In this lecture, Tim Flach will discuss the key themes of his work, particularly reflecting on the

way in which we shape animals and shape their meaning through images.


Tim Flach is the author of several international best selling books, has work in major public and private collections worldwide, and is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards for both fine art photography and editorial and commercial commissions.

In 2012, The Economist's Intelligent Life magazine devoted an unprecedented 14 pages to images from Tim Flach's More Than Human. Other coverage further reflected the impact of the project. This exploration of how humanity sees and shapes other species extended a body of work that has become a unique and important visual inquiry into anthropocentrism.

Through the related book and exhibitions, and earlier projects Dogs Gods and Equus, Tim Flach has attracted international interest, with publications, talks and collaborations in many countries. His images have been acquired by major public and private collections. Commissions by leading editorial and commercial clients have also garnered multiple awards, including three Cannes Lions. He has won the International Photography Award's Professional Photographer of the Year for fine art, and this year was conferred with an Honorary Doctorate (PhD) from Norwich University of the Arts, in recognition of his contribution to Photography, and an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society. Tim Flach studied at Saint Martins, now part of the University of the Arts, and currently lives and works in London.
