Below is Tim's personal outlook on his work:
A photograph can be considered a 'slice of life'. It's one moment selected from the continuum, saved for closer inspection. The choice of when to hit the 'save button' becomes a photographer's 'point of view'.
As I present my point of view, I'm most interested in revealing the transient qualities of beauty and irony found in everyday life and or everyday objects. My intent is to create images that reveal their meaning in stages, rewarding repeated viewing. If some images raise more questions than answers, then they have truly become a representation of life itself.
In all my photographic work, I find the interplay of space, light and texture particularly important. Light makes materials come to life, and space without light is of no interest from the photographic point of view. Texture and surface characteristics - the essence of materials - form an ethereal link with reality in my pictures. It is this, which puts them on the borderline between documentation and pure emotion.
All of my negatives and prints are hand-processed in my studio. I use many different camera formats to best express my ideas. My portfolio includes photographs made from 35mm, 6x7 roll film as well as a 4 x 5 field camera. My panoramic images are captured on a Fuji 617 medium format camera.
The majority of my work is done in Black & White. To me black & white is the purist of photographic images. I use T-Max films almost exclusively. I also use Kodak’s Infrared black & white film, in both 35mm and 4x5, for the unique “surreal dreamlike” look of infrared. Digital imaging is also part of my work which I try and balance traditional and digital.
