The Photography of Timothy Archibald
Timothy Archibald is the photographer agencies call to make empathetic photographs of things that are a little bit different, a little bit curious. Human, humorous and sometimes subversive, these qualities seem to surface in every project he takes on.
Tim was fortunate to discover photography as a teenager. At that time photography was this license to meet people and enter worlds unlike his own. Having the power to enter other cultures different from the suburban world he lived in was a powerful tool for a kid to have.
After leaving school with a degree in Art, he began using this human curiosity to support himself. Photography allowed Tim to explore the subjects he was fascinated with: learn about them, humanize them, and view them with the full range of human emotions they deserved, in conjunction with a voice that was uniquely his own.
These same values come into play with what he's doing now. Over the past 15 years Tim's photographs have regularly been celebrated in Communication Arts Photography Annual, American Photography Annual and have been exhibited in places as wonderful as The Australian Centre for Photography, Zephyr Mannheim Gallery in Germany and Videotage in Hong Kong. But on the set, Tim and his crew are really not afraid to admit that they're total photo nerds who love what they do. And that love is infectious in every job they do.
