Tim Bingham is an award-winning street and documentary photographer from Killarney, Ireland. Tim’s photographs have been exhibited in a number of exhibitions within across Europe and America.
His work aims to capture a descriptive narrative and truthfulness in all the urban images, in detail with an original eye.

Each image of Tims work enchants us with its social documentary. Facial expressions seem to vary between guarded and nonchalant, in many of the images the subject appear to lock eyes with the viewer.

Tim has a knack of imbuing his images with a sense of tension and unease, he has an original eye for depth and detail within urban imagery and there’s a truthfulness to his work, shining a humanising light into the dark spots of our lives today.
