Tim Malyon
 1950 - 2020

Journalism was a large part of Tim's life and has led him to some of the farthest flung places on earth. He was also a campaigning storyteller and highlighted socially relevant narratives and injustices throughout his long career. A superb photographer, Tim also documented his travels with stunning images, which breathed further life into his work.
