At Home with Tim Swallow
As the clock struck 12 on January 1 and we set our intentions for another lap around the sun, no one could have predicted what 2020 had in store for us. With each day seemingly getting stranger and stranger, as we ventured further into the unknown, human connection is what kept us moving forward.
At a time when our social calendars are looking kind of empty, now more than ever, it’s important that we stay connected. That’s why, for our latest campaign, we wanted to introduce you to (or further familiarise you with) some of the talented personalities that make up the extended Thrills family.
Take a peek inside the homes and creative spaces of the people that we work with and who inspire us. And so here it is: Sydney-based director and photographer, Tim Swallow. No brief. No direction. Uncut and uncensored.
