Endangered: An Evening with Tim Flach
Wednesday 28th November, 5pm - 7pm
The title of this project is Endangered, but the question is: to whom does that apply?
The idea that the natural world is vulnerable has only entered the modern general consciousness in the last few decades. Throughout history, nature has been considered an immeasurably vast and infinitely bountiful resource; but today the power structures have changed, and the natural world depends on us as much as we depend on it. People now talk about the Anthropocene epoch. They say that we have moved away from a world shaped by the flux of natural forces to one that is being shaped predominantly by humankind - a theory backed by powerful scientific evidence.
Tim will be talking through his career to date and how he captures his stunning images. He will talk about finding these animals and the process from travel to capture, to edit.
Flach's latest book, Endangered will be available to purchase and he will be signing these after his talk.
Tim Flach is an animal photographer with an interest in the way humans shape animals 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.
Flach has four major bodies of work: Endangered (2017), More Than Human (2012), Dogs Gods (2010) & Equus (2008). Hisimages have been acquired by major public and private collections and exhibited worldwide. Commissioned by leading editorial and commercial clients, he has garnered multiple awards including three Cannes Lions.
Flach is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from University of the Arts London in 2013. He lives and works in London with his wife and son.
