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 stylisation reflecting an interest in how we better connect people to the natural world.
He has five major bodies of work concerning different subjects: Equus (2008) focusing on the horse, Dogs Gods (2010) on canines, More Than Human (2012) a broad exploration of the world’s species, Endangered (2017) a powerful document of species on the edge of extinction, and Birds (2021). He has published seven books; Birds (2021), Who Am I? (2019), Endangered (2017), Evolution (2013), More than Human (2012), Dogs Gods (2010) and Equus (2008).
Flach is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from University of the Arts London (NUA) in 2013. He lives and works in London with his wife and son.
