Tim Walker: Story Teller

Another Somerset House exhibition I am extremely keen to get to ASAP. Tim Walker has been one of my favourite photographers for years now; his unique, fairy-tale and surreal set designs and imaginative concepts are just so my cup of tea. I want to live in a Tim Walker editorial!

"Sometimes when you're taking a picture an extraordinary sense of luck and chance takes over and propels you to make pictures that you couldn't in your wildest dreams have imagined. This is the magic of photography." - Tim Walker

'The exhibition is accompanied by a series of events that feature many of Tim Walker’s long-time collaborators and uncover the influences and stories behind his work. There will be workshops for all ages offering visitors the opportunity to work with some of the set designers and prop builders who have worked with Tim Walker throughout his career and talks will include Tim Walker in Conversation with Penny Martin. Throughout the exhibition there will also be the opportunity to see a series of films specially curated by Tim Walker. Made up of films that have inspired and influenced many of his images, they will include cult movies such as La Belle at la Bete, The Red Shoes, A Matter of Life and Death and Tim’s own first feature The Lost Explorer

To coincide with the exhibition, Thames & Hudson will publish Story Teller by Tim Walker featuring over 175 inspirational images, collages and snapshots from Walker’s personal archives.
