Tim Walker creates his own world

Tim Walker

Tim Walker, born in 1970 in England, ‘invented’ a whole new style of (fashion) photography.

Extravagant staging and romantic motifs characterise his unmistakable style and his work is instantly recognisable.

On graduation in 1994, Tim Walker worked as a freelance photographic assistant in London before moving to New York City as a full time assistant to Richard Avedon. On returning to England he initially concentrated on portrait and documentary work for UK newspapers. At the age of 25 he shot his first fashion story for Vogue, and has continued to do so ever since.

Tim Walker lives in London.

There’s só much beautiful work by Tim Walker, I can’t show it all….

Lady Grey

“Jean Cocteau really influenced me, especially his film Beauty and the Beast”, so said Tim Walker. “I love the fact that the house in this photo shoot is falling into decay, its inhabitants have become part of the building, they will keep on living here forever, only appearing when other people come; it’s as if the house were a living being, composed of the building itself and its former dwellers.” Walker has been long dreaming of creating pictures that would combine his obsession for decay, mythology, and the vanished grandeur of the most exclusive couture, but only recently he’s found the perfect place. “Howick Hall, the home of Earl Grey,” he explains, “has been closed since the Thirties and it’s very spectacular, romantic, tumbledown; its rooms are huge, there’s still the tapestry from the 1920s, almost torn to pieces. The old doors and structures created the perfect atmosphere for our magical sets.”

An Awful Big Adventure

British Vogue December 2012 in Mongolia

I travelled on the ‘Trans-Mongolian Experience’ from Moscow to Beijing a couple of years ago and I fell in love with Mongolia, the most beautiful country I’ve ever seen.

(Thank you Ellen for sharing this memorable journey)
