About Tim Keane


I make images to look more closely at themes about human change, growth and struggle. At times, these are environmental, tying people to place and activity. Some others are portraits to reveal appearances - to discover, explore and reveal. People who have been in studio often express delight at what they discover.

Photographs I strive for contain layers of ambiguity that beg for a second glance. Perhaps it’s the fleeting glimpse in the motion of the world that has been frozen. In that second look, insights sometimes appear that weren’t apparent at the moment.

My aspirational goal is unscripted, momentary, revealing, and intimate images. The viewer will decide what is there. The work can speak for itself.

I live in Wisconsin and Arizona and am often in Ireland or somewhere on assignment.
