Tim Smith is a freelance photographer who combines editorial and commercial work with long term exhibition, publishing and mixed media projects. He is based in Yorkshire. The region and its diverse communities have provided the inspiration and acted as a springboard for national and international projects which have resulted in dozens of exhibitions toured in this country and abroad. His main interests as a photographer and writer have been showcased in eleven books. Much of this work explores the links between Britain and people in other parts of the world and includes publications on Ukraine, Yemen, India and Pakistan.
He is a member of Panos Pictures. This London-based photo agency represents photojournalists worldwide who document issues which are under-reported, misrepresented or ignored.
He was recently commissioned to produce a series of short films for The Space. This new digital arts platform is a joint initiative between the BBC and the Arts Council and his films can be viewed until the end of March 2013 at http://thespace.org/items/s00006fg
