April 2003: Tim Acock

Tim Acock is an Alberta Street neighbor whose work focuses on Alberta Street in the most basic way: his photographs are all of Alberta Street. They have all been taken at night. To quote Acock, "Street lighting has a way of highlighting features unnoticed in the light of day. Shooting at night allows me greater freedom for expressing ideas and moods. The unexpected colors produced by the blending of varying light sources offer me a rich and expressive palette." Though he shoots color negative film, he uses the digital darkroom; scanner, imaging software and archival inkjet printer.
