Magical and Eccentric Photography
Born in England in 1970, Tim Walker’s fascination with photography began in Condé Nast’s very own library in London – where the photographer worked on the Cecil Beaton archive as part of a year’s work experience prior to going to university.
His work – underpinned by a magical and eccentric charm – has since gone on to grace the pages of Vogue, where he continues to wow with his extravagant settings and theatrical characters.
After graduating in 1994, Walker worked as a freelance photography assistant in London before moving to New York to work full-time as assistant to Richard Avedon.
When he returned to England, he initially focused his attention on portrait and documentary work for UK newspapers.
Walker shot his first fashion story for Vogue at the age of 25.
Walker is one of the most exciting photographers of our time, and his flamboyant style—often tongue-in-cheek but always exquisitely executed—places him in the line of brilliant eccentrics from Cecil Beaton to David LaChapelle.
