This is an alternative edition – slightly reduced in trim size but absolutely unabridged – of the 2008 classic, now out of print.
This stunning new edition offers us a privileged glimpse into Walker’s artistic process. It is a comprehensive overview that features a wide array of sketches, contact sheets, Polaroids, and source materials normally hidden within the photographer’s studio. The evocative images are rich with textured nuance and intriguing details. Walker gives full reign to his playful side and intersperses collages among the photographs.
Tim Walker’s exuberant fashion photography has dazzled the readers of Vogue and other leading magazines for over a decade. Elaborate staging and romantic motifs characterize his distinctive style. Compiled by Walker himself, a mélange of photo essays and personal pictures as well as scrapbook pages of collages and preliminary studies take us deep into his creative methods. In addition, there is a fascinating array of quotes from Walker, his assistants, fashion editors and models. This volume showcases some of the most imaginative art produced today.
