Jay Brooks is the latest of almost 400 photographers to photograph Tim Andrews for his now legendary Over The Hill project.
In 2007 Tim was forced to give up his job as a solicitor when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Uncertain at first what to do, on a whim he answered an ad in Time Out from a photographer looking for subjects. He went to the photographers studio, the photographs were taken, Tim enjoyed the experience and the Over The Hill project was born.
Tim began to write to photographers and ask if they would take his portrait and since then has had his photograph taken by just short of 400 different photographers, ranging from the most august professionals to the completely amateur. The work is fascinating in its range and variety but it is driven by Tim’s generosity and enthusiasm to make the best possible pictures in every situation. He is open to any idea, will work clothed or naked and as you can see is quite happy in a gorilla suit.
Tim has recently decided to call it a day and end the project. There will, he says, be no more new photographs added after the end of May but we are sure that with such an amazing body of work there will be more shows and exhibitions in the future.

Ferrari Magazine (TOFM) flew Pip and crew to Valencia to shoot the fashion story for their spring edition. They were drawn there by the location, the dramatic Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, a cultural centre opened in 2005, which gives the shoot its futuristic backdrop.
The styling, including pieces from Ferrari’s own range, was by Jess Punter with hair and make up by Annabel McCrory. The models were Alissandre Martines at Milk Management and David Pascual from Mad Models in Madrid. The shoot was overseen and art directed by Official Ferrari Magazine creative director Warren Jackson and the all important car is a California T.
