Tim grew up doing street photography (without really giving a name to it) in a fast-changing 1990’s New York City. Inspired by photographers like Nan Goldin, who captured a moment in time in New York history in such an intimate, raw and beautiful way, he became intrigued with pursuing a more social documentary approach. At Pomona College, he studied media studies and art history, including independent studies in photography with LA-based artist, Ken Gonzales-Day. Tim’s passion for street photography was reignited by LACP in 2016.
After living in LA for 17 years, street photography has opened up parts of the city to me that I would have never seen, and let me to experience the humanity that ties people together. I’m excited to be capturing (and hopefully doing my part to help preserve the memory of) a city that is changing so rapidly, and I’m intrigued to see how these images appear to me in 20 years.ST
