When people speak about Tim Page they often drift straight to the injuries, the drugs and the wild man portrayed by Hopper in Francis Ford Copolla’s acclaimed Vietnam epic.

While this is the oft reported and discussed subject matter, it is a mistake to dwell there too long. The pictures he has made over a long career are strong, direct, unflinching things. Until I started looking I never realized he had around ten books to his name (a good indication of my naivety).

He is a member of the superb collective Degreesouth and continues to work on personal and commissioned pictures.
