More About the Author

Tim Flach was born in London in 1958 and studied fine art at Central St. Martin's College of Art and Design. He emerged with a fascination for photography, which has since led to numerous commissions, awards, solo exhibitions, and a presence in permanent collections and publications around the world. He is best known for the originality that he brings to capturing animal behavior and characteristics. In this, he is often exploring the close relationship between humans and animals, in particular how humanity imposes and reveals its ideals when trying to understand and work with animals.
Dogs is Tim Flach's second book. His first, Equus, was published as a standard edition in 2008, and a large-format limited edition in collaboration with renowned purveyor of luxury goods Asprey of London in 2009.

It seems like I have been waiting forever for this book to be published and now I have one in my hands. I had seen the images on Tim Flach's web site but couldn't imagine their tactile presence. The book is huge and the physical act of turning such big pages creates drama, as the next image unfolds.

I believe that this book will be the new standard by which artistic animal photography will be judged.

It is stunning, thought-provoking and inspirational, without any text to get in the way of your own reactions. (Although there is text elsewhere in the book, should you care to read more.)

This book will never grow old. You will, but this book will grow with you. You'll see it again for the first time, every time you open it.

And you'll know horses as you never have before.

Probably the best horse photo book I have seen, even surpassing Robert Vavra, which is quite a feat. For someone who works with horses, as I do every day, with this book you can almost smell the wet hide and feel the flow of mane. The beauty and magic of horses is in the smallest details, the whole form, and the movement. Tim Flach has somehow managed to capture all three aspects. The various geographical locations are a wonderful enhancement as well. This is a book of beauty.

Although there are a few very beautiful - even magical - photos in this book, I regret buying it. It is not worth its price. I am a fan of artistic photos, so the fact that the most pictures show only parts of horses doesn't bother me. What does, is that there is so much space lost in this book. There are many pages left blank (black or white), so the thickness of the book tricks you. There are far less photos in it than one might expect. I counted the blank pages out of curiosity: 86 out of 300 pages are blank; that is almost a third! What a shame! In addition to that, most photos aren't even full-page.
For the money that I paid, I expected some more.

I bought this book for my 12 year old Grandson for a Christmas gift. It is a beautiful book and as a horse lover he will be thrilled with the book.

Great disappointment. Expected beautiful equine pics. Got fetal development and placentas.
Photos are partials of ears nostrils.
Not at all what I wanted!!!

The work that Tim Flach did over 7 years is amazing. His previous work as a commercial photographer gave him the knowledge and technique to produce stunning images of a very difficult subject matter. It's clear that he loves his subject. He explored every aspect of the horse, from conception to maturity. Very few photographers are successful bringing their subject into the studio as well as permitting their subject to interact in its own environment, "unposed". He wasn't satisfied with a good attempt at solving a visual problem, rather, he went beyond and found a method to effectively communicate, in an outstanding way. Example: He and his assistant, in the back of a pickup truck, raced with a horse, side by side. His goal was to capture digitally the intense energy and power of the horse during those moments. The result: a very close, intimate picture of a horse at a moment in time. Standing far away with a telephoto lens would not have produced the same quality.

This work will be appreciated by anybody who loves great images.

These photographs are truly unique and so different from most photographic books on horses. It showcases many breeds in their natural habitat, which is spectacular, but also has many select shots of the natural curves of the horse played against light patterns, etc. A true work of art.

The section at the back of the book is rather strange in that it highlights some injuries to horses as well as their "natural" habitat, such as flies on manure. This section could easily have been omitted.

The photography is breathtaking, but it's not your typical book for any horse-lover. It has an eerie quality that comes from the fact that Tim Flatch looks at horses from an almost purely visual point of view, as an artistic subject rather than from an emotional bond. The end result is very beautiful, awe-inspiring, but also oddly detached. I love the book, but if you want breed profiles or the classic shots, you could be disappointed.
