At last! Tim Walker at the V&A, London

Whimsical, extravagant, out-of-this-world: the V&A museum have just announced an upcoming exhibition (well, we will have to wait a bit: 7 September 2019 – 8 March 2020) dedicated to the fantastical fashion photographer Tim Walker. You can admire some of his iconic pictures in this post we published in 2012. The immersive exhibition, showcasing everything from installations, films, photo sets, and at the heart of it all – a brand new photo-series influenced by the V&A’s collections. As well as as a retrospective of the photographer, the exhibition (designed by British art director Shona Heath) will also pay an homage to the contributions of his creative collaborators, from stylists, makeup artists, set designers, to models and artists who have all played a part in the creation of Walker’s magical worlds.

Tim Walker, Story Teller

Le photographe Tim Walker a eu la chance, à peine son diplôme obtenu en 1994, de quitter Londres pour New York, où l'attendait le poste très convoité d'assistant personnel de l'immense Richard Avedon. Presque deux décennies plus tard, Tim Walker a illustré les pages de magazines de mode de centaines de clichés plus surprenants et inattendus les uns que les autres. Une exposition et un livre (chez Thames & Hudson) racontent en images la vie et la carrière de Tim Walker, génial story teller de la mode. A hardly graduated Tim Walker was lucky enough to leave London and fly to New York in 1994, where he became no less but the personal assistant to the prodigious photographer Richard Avedon. Almost twenty years later, having graced glossy fashion magazines with many amazing and marvelously wacky pictures, Tim Walker is being offered an exhibition and a book (published by Thames & Hudson), illustrating the life and career of this very gifted fashion stories teller.
