Tim Flach is the current AOP president. He is a photographer best known for his stylised portraits of animals and for the originality that he brings to capturing animal behaviour and characteristics. His work is driven by a desire to better communicate stories of the natural world and to explore questions around art, communication and conservation science.
His photographs are showcased in books, exhibitions and galleries around the world. He has seven internationally published books: Birds (2021), Who am I? (2019), Endangered (2017), Evolution (2013), More Than Human (2012), Dogs Gods (2010) & Equus (2008). He has also contributed to books and group projects, including Surveying the Anthropocene: Environment and Photography Now, which was published by Edinburgh University Press in 2021, and A Cabinet of Curiosities for the Anthropocene, published by Chicago Press in 2018.
He has also contributed to academic research into how photographs of animals impact their audiences. In 2020, he published a study with two social scientists, Professors Cameron Thomas Whitley and Linda Kalof, which used empirical evidence to show that anthropomorphic animal portraits promote empathy. Tim has been invited to speak at conferences such as The Zoological Society of London and St Petersburg International Economic Forum, and has lectured at universities worldwide.
In recognition of his work, he has received a number of awards, including an Honorary Fellowship from the Royal Photographic Society and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of the Arts London (Norwich) in 2013. He is currently an Artists in Residence at The Centre for Eudaemonia and Human Flourishing, Linacre College, University of Oxford.
