I didn’t recognize the name Tim Flach, but I certainly recognized some of the images when I began looking through his photographs. You will, too.
If you love dogs (and I’m not entirely sure I trust you if you don’t), and better, you love great photography, check out Flach’s website. Even the home page is a work of art. Once inside, check out “Dog Gods,” his gallery of dog photos. For horse lovers, there’s “Equus.” And for lovers of all animals, don’t miss “More Than Human.”
Flach’s often abstract photographic style has been described as “the perfect antithesis to anthropomorphism”. “Flach employs the artistic technique of defamiliarization in many of his studio portraits, creating deliberately ambiguous close-ups, which present the subject at unusual angles in order to provoke questions from the viewer.” “He may depict a horse against a monumental landscape, or create a close-up image of part of the animal so that it challenges our perspective and forces us to reconsider and question for ourselves why we react in a specific way to what we are seeing.”
