tim van der merwe is based between shenzhen, southern china and seoul, south korea. the aesthetics of his photographs are drawn from his background as a musician, the last decade living in asia, and colouring that reflects the atlantic, whose coast he grew up near. he values calm moments, quiet simplicity, and authentic expression, elements that he seeks to portray in all of his photographs.
