More than Human – Tim Flach

A renowned London-based photographer Tim Flach presents his work of seven years in an animal portrait book called More than Human“. By taking striking close-up shots of various animals, Tim attempts to demonstrate how close can animal gestures and poses get to those of the humans. What looks like images of unselfconscious and spontaneous reactions of the animals, is actually a result of long research and observation done by the artist. Every animal responds differently to temperature changes, light, human presence and even sounds – some of them would feel better with the music on, while the other would get intimidated by it. The carefully lit and cropped images evoke unexpected sense of intimacy and empathy even with the less cuddly animal models. Tim did everything to create individual settings for all of them, and his magnificent pictures prove that all the efforts paid off. What looks like images of unselfconscious and spontaneous reactions of the animals, is actually a result of long research and observation done by the artist.

  1. Tutte molto belle…mi dà un po’da pensare il galletto spiumato.
    Stavo pensando a quanto sarebbero belle o sicuramente interessanti quelle di un’eventuale serie “More than bestial” con certi visi “umani” (magari quelli dei politici ai talk show), sai, tipo certi quadri ..sto pensando a Bosch😉

    • Ecco, veramente il galletto a me fa pena, nel senso che vorrei capire come le ha perse le piume, povera bestia…In effetti i trapani ci vorrebbero, per certi crani politicamente bestiali…🙂 io parlavo di Hieronymus..:D
