Crane Kalman Brighton is pleased to present a new exhibition from British photographer, Tim Flach. Equus is a collection of stunning and unusual images on the subject of horses.
Part of an on-going photographic project commissioned by book publishers, PQ Publishing, Equus, features rare and beautiful horses from the four-corners of the globe. From some of the most highly prized Arabians from the Royal Yards of the UAE to the classical beauty of the Lusitano and from pure-bred Icelandic horses in their glacial habitat to 1,000s of Mustangs racing across the plains of Utah.
The horses are captured from the air, from the sea, from underwater and from under the ground, and provide an amazing and unique insight into the physical dynamics and spirit of the horse quite different from anything seen before.
Tim Flach is a graduate of St. Martins School of Art where he studied Photography & Painted Structures. Having spent the last twenty years as a highly successful advertising photographer (clients include Adidas, Cirque du Soleil, Jaguar and Sony), Tim has more recently been focusing on his own personal work.
He has mainly become renown for his highly stylized animal portraits, which are far removed from traditional wildlife photography's images of animals observed in their natural habitat.
With this new project, Tim has turned his creative attention to horses, aiming to capture the emotion that horses evoke in us, rather than to simply take a photograph of a horse. Tim brings his subjects into such close focus that the viewer begins to read the gestures and body language as we would a human being. His photographs evoke pathos, humour and an unmistakably intimate human empathy.
Tim's work has been featured in publications such as Creative Review and Stern Magazine, and he has also received many international photography awards including the Association of Photography and British Design & Art Direction Awards. His work has been widely exhibited in the UK, US and Far East and Tim has also lectured extensively around the world.
Tim Flach: Equus runs from 24th August to 1st October at Crane Kalman Brighton, 38 Kensington Gardens, Brighton. For any further information, please contact Richard Kalman on 01273 697096 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
