Welcome! I am Timothy Walter, an arts entrepreneur and art photographer based in Durham, NC.
My current photo project is the creation of striking portraits of friends and performers; we work collaboratively to portray an authentic emotion or memory using theatrical lighting and makeup. The images on my homepage are a selection of portraits in which the participants acted out experiences of trauma. The goal was to make visible emotions of anger, dismay, grief -- and sometimes resilience and growth.
The images you see are part of a solo show awarded by the organizers of the 2018 Click Triangle Photo Festival held at Through This Lens gallery on the central square downtown. Here are some images of the installation.
My other passion is directing The Fruit (aka Durham Fruit & Produce Co.) an art center in downtown Durham. Last year, with the help of Center Studio Architects, we rehabbed a derelict 22,000sf former cold-storage warehouse. The Fruit is a place to create and experience various types of art, photography, film, drama and modern dance. It is home to both an alternative art scene as well as the periodic world-class exhibition or performance.
Prints are available for individual purchase in the range of $800-$2400 depending on size. They can also be purchased as a full body, or rented for shows or conferences. I am an experienced public speaker, and am available for conferences, especially those that address psychology and creativity/arts.
