Tim Walker is one of the most visually exciting photographers of our time. Tim Walker: Story Teller, now in paperback for the first time, showcases many of his most dazzling images—“his daydreams turned into photographs.” Some of the biggest names in fashion and contemporary culture are included: Alexander McQueen and a memento mori of skull and cigarettes; Alber Elbaz sporting a pair of rabbit ears; Agyness Deyn in the sand dunes of Namibia; Helena Bonham Carter poised with Ray-Bans and a Diet Coke; and Stella Tennant in a pink cloud among the rhododendrons of an English country garden.
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 ow reveals just how much one man’s singular vision has influenced contemporary tastes in fashion, beauty, glamour, and portraiture.
