Tokyo Bloom

28 April 2016 — 22 May 2016

'Tokyo Bloom' - A solo photography exhibition by Tim Lambourne.

Immersed in one of the world's most crushing and isolating urban environments, Tim Lambourne set about capturing a softer side of Tokyo, Japan.

Shot on medium format film, Tokyo Bloom explores how simple displays of colour and beauty can bring comfort within inner city isolation.


Tim Lambourne

Tim Lambourne was born just outside of Auckland, New Zealand in 1988.  He received a Bachelor of Communications Studies from AUT University in 2010.  During his degree he travelled to the University of Missouri where he studied art photography under Joe Johnson.  

In 2010 he and Joe Dowling launched theshutterpirates.com which one year later was the inaugural winner of the Concrete Playground Blog of the Year award.  In 2012 Tim and Joe launched Paper Pirates, a travelling democratic photography exhibition which has been shown in Auckland (2012-2013), Tokyo (2014) and New York (2015).

His first solo show, Tokyo Bloom, showed at Allpress Studios in Auckland, New Zealand in late 2015, and has been commissioned for an encore showing at 35b in Wellington, New Zealand, in mid 2016.
