Tim Tronckoe is proud to announce 'Portraits', a collection of photographs from the course of the past three years.
Portraits contains over seventy unseen portraits of rock musicians, who Tim carefully selected, photographed as if they had been painted as historical figures by the old masters.
Portraits is a 180-page visual recording of today's musical artists, expressed through Tim Tronckoe's unique and distinctive vision.
Featuring a monumental selection of photographs which have never before been published, Portraits shows Tim's unconditional love for fine art, photography and history.
In this book/project, Tim wants to emphasize the way we look at musicians and artists. We worship them, we admire them, as if they were kings and queens. However, underneath those layers, underneath that image, there is a real person that goes beyond the understanding of a single portrait.
