Tim Walker: Shoot for the Moon

Tim Walker

Renowned for his surreal fashion photography, Tim Walker’s new book challenges convention to explore the very concept of photographic imagination.

Description

Story Teller introduced audiences to the fantastical, magical worlds of Tim Walker, conjured anew with each shoot. Shoot for the Moon, Walker’s much-awaited follow-up, draws audiences close to tell the story of fantasy’s other, darker side.

Delving into the art and mind of one of the most exciting, original fashion photographers working today, Shoot for the Moon showcases the breadth of Walker’s weird, wild wonderlands, in his signature opulent style and decadent eccentricity, exploring questions of imagination and inspiration, and where they come from.

Dazzlingly designed and lavishly produced, Shoot for the Moon contains spectacular photographs of some of the biggest names in fashion and contemporary culture, images that demand to be read as art as much as fashion. Featuring a long list of contributors and texts from Walker himself illuminating the images, the majority of which are new or previously unpublished in book form, Shoot for the Moon is set to be an unmissable addition to the library of fashion photography.
