Tim Flach, More Than Human

Nov 3, 2012 - Tag: PHOTO

Award-winning photographer Tim Flach has spent years inquiring into the magic and mystery of the essential bond we have with animals.

Now, in the culmination of years of tireless, expert endeavor, he presents an extraordinary body of work in which each image is more striking and powerful than the last.

Just as with Flach’s highly acclaimed previous books, EQUUS and DOGS, MORE THAN HUMAN will amaze, inspire, puzzle, challenge, and liberate, illuminating the ethical, scientific, and political debates that surround our relationships with the natural world, and constantly affirming the animal, whether it be rare or common, defenseless, clumsy, or dangerous. The species featured in this book form an eclectic and compelling menagerie of creatures including tigers, lions, bears, orangutans, horses, snakes, porcupines, elephants, owls, armadillos, sea horses, and jellyfish, among many others, each having an intrinsic value illuminated by Flach’s masterful lens.

Shedding light on Flach’s images and the concepts that underpin his work is a perceptive collection of texts, written and edited by acclaimed author Lewis Blackwell.
