British photographer Tim Flach sees animals in a completely different way. Having completed postgraduate studies at St. Martina School of Art London, Flach shoots stylized animal portraits that look more like fine art than framed shots of your puppy. Commercially trained as a professional photographer for over 25 years, Flach's conceptual style has been shaped by his background not just in photography but in, curiously, panted sculptures.
Flach recently released a book called "Dogs" that's definitely worth a look. As the stunning follow-up to the critically acclaimed Eguus, Flach "delves deep into the psyche of this enduring bond with Canis familiaris to present an exquisite study of "man's best friend."
