Book Description

8 Oct 2012
Tim Walker is one of the most visually exciting photographers of our time. This book showcases many of his most dazzling images his daydreams turned into photographs, dating from around the last seven years of his career. Some of the biggest names in fashion and contemporary culture are here: Alber Elbaz sporting a pair of rabbit ears; Agyness Deyn in the sand dunes of Namibia; Alexander McQueen and a memento mori of skull and cigarettes; Helena Bonham Carter poised with Ray-Bans and a Diet Coke; Stella Tennant in a pink cloud among the rhododendrons of an English country garden The singer and musician Kate Bush contributes a foreword and Walker himself an afterword, as well as illuminating his pictures throughout with personal observations. This exceptional and beautifully designed overview of a career caught in mid-flow reveals just how much one mans singular vision has influenced contemporary tastes in fashion, beauty, glamour and portraiture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing present to give! 10 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Me and my mum had visited the Tim Walker exhibition at Somerset House and I thought this would be a perfect gift for her as she loves Walker's work and thought the book was very inspirational to her own work - designing fancy dress costumes. A truly wonderful book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational pictures 1 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of Tim Walker you will not need encouragement. These are inspirational and fantastic pictures, beautiful pictures, beautifully presented. Some of the pictures probably appear elsewhere but I have none of these in any other book. An excellent addition to my library. Purchase from Amazon was simple and efficient: arrived next day. Large enough to need a van for its delivery so you get lots of book for your money.

Cheap at the price
