Earlier in the year I had the pleasure of meeting Tim Andrew, a former solicitor who was forced to give up his practice due to the development of Parkinson’s Disease.
His diagnosis sparked something which allowed his evidently creative mind to be explored.
The last few years has seen Tim’s body studied closely by hundreds of artists – it has now become a trend to be able to say you’ve taken his portrait. Along Tim’s (sometimes sparsely dressed) journey to discover a new world he has himself become a piece of art. Over 50 photographs of Tim taken by a variety of Brighton photographers will be on display as part of this year’s Brighton Photo Fringe, and will attempt to “give a flavour of the enormous diversity of style and concept” used by the artists.
From professional photographers to family members with a camera, the Over the Hill exhibition showcases some of the finest images of Tim, who curated the project himself, along with photographer Julia Horbaschk. It is supported by Parkinson’s UK, the UK’s main Parkinson’s support and research charity.
• The exhibition will be open during the Brighton Photo Fringe (4th-17th November), at Create Gallery, New England House on New England street.
