Tim Simmons’ photographs are investigations into the multilayered relationship we have with our surroundings.
Shooting at night or in twilight, he manipulates his subject into something beyond mere landscape, achieving a pictorial language that alludes to fairytale worlds or stories of alien visitation.
Through subtle changes to familiar territory, Simmons creates sublime vignettes which resonate feelings of the spirit of a place. Cleansed of imperfection, and seemingly abandoned, familiar scenarios become strange and dreamlike; more like the memory of a place than the reality. Like mementos to instants of heightened awareness, these images provide spaces for reflection on our existence in this world.
