Reading like a mish-mash of children’s fairytales, the Tim Walker: Story Teller exhibit at London’s Somerset House plays host to our childhood dreams, complete with unicorns, Alice in Wonderland, and Humpty Dumpty dolls. The five-year retrospective from fashion-come-fantasy photographer Tim Walker, runs through January 27, and revisits youth whilst restoring our faith in all things whimsical.blog-tim-walker-story-teller-03.jpgThe Tim Walker: Story Teller exhibitionHaving leaned the tricks of the trade under the eye of Richard Avedon, Tim Walker is arguably one of the decade’s most celebrated fashion photographers. A W icon—shooting editorials like the Chinoiserie dream “Magical Thinking” and Tilda Swinton’s ethereal Iceland editorial—he manages to use his camera to seamlessly combine fairytale fantasies with sophisticated realities. Yet to him, it’s simple. He says the camera “is simply a box put between you and what you want to capture”.Setting out with a candid vision – a childlike dream – Walker works with a troop of costume fitters, stylists, make-up artists, and set designers, to illustrate his storybook visions. Speaking of the story behind the images, Walker writes, “And when everything comes together and you look through the viewfinder, there is a window to something magical…you see something you have never seen”.blog-tim-walker-story-teller-01.jpg
