As part of the Outside:Inside Festival we are celebrating the work of local photographer, Tim Redgrove.
Tim was brought up in Reading, UK and has worked in photography for many years. From 1995 to 2003 he worked as a sports photographer at Reading Football Club producing photographic work for 2 books about the club as well as calendars and publicity work. During this time Tim also worked as sports photographer for both the Reading Chronicle and Reading Post. He then spent several years photographing the Tour de France including Lance Armstrong’s record breaking victories in 2004 and 2005 and in 2008 he photographed the victorious Great Britain track cyclists including Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton prior to the Bejing Olympics.
His work has appeared in the The Times, The Guardian and The Independent newspapers as well as publications in the UK and Europe. His first ever photographic work was as a publicity photographer for a theatre company he used to run in London. Tim co-founded the company with Dominic Cooke (now Artisitc Director at the Royal Court) and Ruth Jones (writer and star of BBC’s Gavin and Stacey).
For the last 3 summers Tim has produced a photographic record of the fans visiting the Reading Music festival, documenting the many varied visitors to Reading’s landmark festival.
