TIM is a self-taught photographer born in Paris in 1993. The three-letters alias stands for her initials, Tristane I. Mesquita.
Although she’s been taking pictures since her teenage years, TIM mostly developed her photography skills alongside the band Savages. For over two years, she followed the four musicians on tour from Europe to the USA as their official photographer, documenting her friends’ adventures both on stage and backstage. During this experience, she developed an obsession with capturing fleeting emotions before they expire. She is currently working on a very different long term project, ‘Fragments’, thought as an abstract photo diary that focuses on seeing the everyday life as exceptional – finding beauty and harmony in the ordinary.
