What Happened Here
‘Part photo-documentary, part art project, What Happened Here describes the life of an abandoned former industrial area of Frome between 2017 and 2019. Using expired, degraded photographic film, Tim’s attention to the site gradually revealed a darker narrative which will come fully to light in a book due for launch in 2022.’
Tim Gander’s professional photographic career spans more than three decades; the first 15 years spent as a news photographer, he now specialises in corporate communications. When Tim isn’t working on boardroom headshots and ‘website collateral’, he is happiest shooting long-form photographic essays. This personal work combines his love of editorial and documentary with fine art aesthetics, creating a deeper connection between subject and audience.
