I’ve been a fan of Tim Walker’s photography for a while now. He produces a vibrant collection of fashion photos that encourages you to look at the setting as much as the clothing. Everything in Walker’s pictures is specially constructed. He uses a selection of extraordinary props and models on show: giant grotesque dolls and an almost life-size replica of a doomed Spitfire fighter plane. The extravagant stagings of Walker’s photographs have an unmistakeable style.
Want to know more about Tim Walker? In 1994 Walker started work as a freelance photographer in London before moving to New York. Initially he focussed on portrait and documentary work for UK newspapers. At the age of 25 he started working for Vogue and in 2008 he received the ‘Isabella Blow award for Fashion Creator’ from The British Fashion Council. Walker then went on to secure two further awards with the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography in New York in 2009 and the Honorary Fellowship from the Royal Photographic Society in 2012.
