Tim Walker – Fashion Photographer



Having recently seen an exhibition of Tim Walker’s pictures at the Design Museum, London, I’d highly recommend catching it if you can, as it runs until the 7th September, 2008.

Tim creates evocative images full of textured nuance and intriguing detail and his innovative photography is amongst the most imaginative and exuberant being produced today.

He draws upon his childhood to construct sets for his images that are witty and playful yet sufficiently sophisticated enough to perform for his fashion clients.

Its the sort of thinking that I could imagine creating lots of fun during a shoot (aside from the hard work in creating it of course) as well as in conceiving his ideas.

For instance, deciding to colour tint a group of cats or projecting a film onto the side of a house, or screen set within a rising tide at sunset. Or posing his models in an oversized knitted sweater and scarf, next to a huge camera or glove or under a tree bearing cakes.

The exhibition places some of these oversized objects amidst large prints of his photos and also presents some of his artistic process, from inspiration to execution, via sketch and scrapbook pages.

Definitely alot of effort required, and it pays off.

I love Tim Walker! His work is very creative. The way he demostrate a concept in a photograph is a total genius.

Does anyone know the name of the Vogue UK September 2006 article with the spread (pictured by Tim Walker) featuring the country house having the film screened onto it?
