Tim Edgar was born in Somerset, England and studied at Salisbury College of Art and the University of Wales, Newport. He is now based in Swanage, Dorset.
He explores specific sites of “Natural History” combining scientific conventions with a practice
rooted in contemporary documentary photography. Local sites of conflict are explored over
long periods of time. Starting points are often the life / death cycle of particular nests and
habitats, for example a “Rookery” a “Cobweb” or the daily rural “Dog Walk”.
His publications include “Rookery” (2003) and “Insect Theatre” (2013) as well as several one
off “Artists Books”. His work has also been featured in Source (Issue 57) and Shots (Issue
110) as well as in the Black Dog publications Critical Dictionary (2011) and The Art of Walking
