At the heart of Tim’s work is the psychological landscape, and nowhere is this more evident than in his series Vestiges. These photographs were taken after the devastating earthquakes that hit Christchurch in September 2010 and February 2011, the latter of which took the lives of 185 people. Vestiges shows some of the damage done to the environment; the flooding, the land subsidence, the liquefaction. More than this, however, these forlorn
unpeopled images are documents of the psychological: the emptiness, the sadness, the devastation, the desolation, and the loss felt by the people of Christchurch.
