Tim Flach is a British photographer who specialises in studio photography of animals. He has published several books of photographs.

Life[edit]

Flach was born in London, where he works and lives with his wife and son.[1][2]

Work[edit]

Flach works in a studio in Shoreditch, in the East End of London. Many of his photographs are of captive animals and are taken under highly controlled conditions with the help of a large support team.[3]:155[4] For his book Endangered, published in 2017, he also photographed some wild animals in their natural habitat.[5]

Flach is known for his use of the principles of human portraiture to engage with debates on anthropocentrism.[6]

His work has been commissioned and featured by publications such as National Geographic,[7] Creative Review,[8] The New York Times,[9] The Guardian[10] and The New Scientist.[11] He has lectured at universities worldwide,[12] as well as at institutions such as the Zoological Society of London[13] and the St Petersburg International Economic Forum.[14] He has released five books to date: Equus (2008), Dogs: Gods (2010), More than Human (2012), Evolution (2013) and Endangered (2017).
