The Butchers Block by Tim Roda - modern mythology in a domestic setting

Tim Roda's black & white motifs play with personal memories of childhood as well as common mythical motifs in a context that is deliberately independent of time.

The master photographer focuses his camera on the creation of bizarre sets with his family. Even the sets are not worked out in the most perfected manner imaginable, quite the opposite – the idea is the concept, realised with simple materials such as stone, wood or clay.

The mostly unedited images, seemingly incomplete in parts, are exactly what they are supposed to be. They grant the audience a glance into his world. The staged emotion is supported by the technical finesse such as acid burns or fake mistakes. Hence, the manual work that went into the photographs is intended to be discovered and noticed.

Tim was born in Lancaster in 1977 and studied art at Pennsylvania State University as well as the University of Washington. His works can be found in the Essl Museum, Klosterneuburg, Austria; the Gaia Collection, Turin, Italy; in Elton John’s Private Collection, Atlanta, Georgia and more. He lives and works in New York.
