My Bio Tim Topple (b. 1975) is a London-based street and fine art photographer with a background in animation and graphic design. After briefly studying photography as an art student in the '90s, he took it up in earnest in 2003 after discovering what can be achieved with simple pocket 35mm film cameras that free up the photographer to react quickly and make instant decisions about composition and subject. Although he now also uses digital, instant and even disposable cameras, it was this early adoption of a fast and loose shooting style, as well as experimenting with different film types and techniques that has since informed the look of most of his work. The hum of the city and the tiny moments of visual poetry and human interaction are what inspire him, but most of all it's a personal need to have a 'life's work' to remember it all by. He has work published in "The Lomo LC-A" (ISBN 978-3-902217-16-5) and is a member of London Independent Photography.
