Tim Palman is an early career photographic artist born and based in Perth, Western Australia. His work takes a documentary format, culminating in large scale projects that explore and expose the human condition through the study of physical and social landscapes. Through his practice Palman assumes the role of the wandering flaneur – the photographs merely acting as evidence of one’s movement throughout the landscape. The use of medium and large format film cameras imparts a silent, vacant, quality in his images – rendering them as a “collection” of places, objects and people, void of any true decisive moment.
