Tim Walker and romanticism

on

Tim Walker (1970), photographer and filmaker.

Tim Walker’s photographs have entranced the readers of Vogue, month by month, for over a decade. Extravagant staging and romantic motifs characterise his unmistakable style. 

Walker’s interest in photography began at the Condé Nast library in London where he worked on the Cecil Beaton archive for a year before university. After a three-year BA Honors degree in Photography at Exeter College of Art, Walker was awarded third prize as The Independent Young Photographer Of The Year.

Upon graduation in 1994, Walker worked as a freelance photographic assistant in London before moving to New York City as a full time assistant to Richard Avedon. At the age of 25 he shot his first fashion story for Vogue, and has photographed for the British, Italian, and American editions, as well as W Magazine and LOVE Magazine ever since.

Walker staged his first major exhibition at the Design Museum, London in 2008. This coincided with the publication of his book‘Pictures’ published by teNeues. The Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery in London include Walker’s photographs in their permanent collections.
