Tim Richmond

Photographer Tim Richmond for over 25 years has worked for publications including L’Uomo Vogue, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Telegraph Magazine, GQ, Port.

In recent years he has concentrated on his long-term projects, the first of which Last Best Hiding Place was published June 2015, to his on-going series in England Love Bites, as well as making short films.

After studying with cinematographers, Richmond arrived at a version of colour through the application of a cinematic device called “bleach by pass”, the hand processed negative retains some silver, yielding a unique subtle de-saturation in the prints.

Printing for him is a heartfelt, poetic process, guided by memory of the moment.
