From HEL & Back is a platform to showcase creative projects by professional photographer Tim Maher.
The name From HEL & Back, FHaB for short, came about because Tim is based in Helsinki (HEL) and he has a wondering mind with wandering feet. It is where he develops personal ideas to complement his commercial work. Much like life, it is a constant work in progress and is providing him with the creative satisfaction and the desire to constantly explore. So far, this predilection has seen him travel round South America for two months, seeking new memories and recollections to go with his childhood growing up in Argentina and Peru; the daily series of posts ‘100 for 100’ to celebrate the centenary of Finland’s independence in 2017; the photo essay ‘The Spaces of Emptiness’, an intimate take on time, space and loss in Madrid; ‘The Reduction of Europa’, a visual interpretation of the difficulties facing the EU; and many more, plus whatever else he has added since he last updated this page.
If you just want to see the visual work, without the words, best you head straight to the Portfolio section. The Journal section is where you’ll find the posts, a combination of words and images, often just a few thoughts from the various stages of a project; or select a category from within the Journal posts, for example Photo of the Day, showcasing one particular standout image at a time. Basically, browse at your leisure.
