Tim Edgar - r o o k e r y

We probably all want to make photographs that have impact, substance and a certain "wow factor". In the quest to achieve this we often overlook the simple and obvious truth that less is often more. When Tim Edgar's small and perfectly formed self published book, r o o k e r y, arrived in my mail box this morning its quiet understated perfection was loaded with possibilities. Thank you Tim.

Tim lives in Swanage, Dorset and is a Senior Lecturer in Photography at The Arts University College at Bournemouth. He often explores specific sites of “Natural History” combining scientific conventions with a practice rooted in contemporary documentary photography. Local sites of conflict are explored over long periods of time. Starting points are often the life / death cycle of particular nests and habitats, for example a “Rookery” a “Cobweb” or the daily rural “Dog Walk”.
