All photographs by Tim Walker www.timwalkerphotography.com
Tim Walker is one of my favourite photographers and a real British gem. His fantastical concept based imagery is completely constructed in front of the camera; nothing is photoshopped! He has an amazing eye for extravagance and originality and has turned photo shoots more into film sets with fashion stylists, set designers, hair and makeup artists, prop makers, painters and of course models to play out the scenes that start in his imagination.
He has an exhibition on at the moment in Somerset House which I can't wait to visit. As well as photographs the exhibition includes huge set and prop pieces like the almost life size Spitfire pictured above! The exhibition coincides with the publication of his book Tim Walker: Storyteller, which is also a huge temptation. But until then we can always catch his latest work in Vogue...
