‘Wanted’, the image of Tim Andrews is back on show, this time as a printed exhibition. Tim, who suffers of Parkinson's disease, had the urge to be photographed by over 130 photographers (including Rankin, Harry Borden, Vanessa Winship, Jillian Edelstein, and many more…) since the onset of his illness. By turning himself into an art object, he got featured at the BBC Culture Show and the Guardian Weekend Magazine in February 2011.
A small selection of this project (including ‘Wanted’) is featured at The Impact Art Fair. Impact profiles work from highly talented artists loosely described as ‘marginalised’ or ‘outsider’ such as those who use mental health services, who have physical disabilities or learning difficulties, who have experience of homelessness or substance mis-use, refugees, long-term unemployed, offenders or ex-offenders.
