Tim Walker: Storyteller Exhibition

A few weeks ago I attended the incredible Tim Walker Storyteller exhibition at Somerset House, after months of eagerly awaiting it's opening. As many of you know, Walker is one of my all time favourite photographers, purely for his utter imagination, attention to detail and beautiful, whimsical and dreamlike creations when producing his visual work. I admire his unique creative eye and concepts and the fact one can always tell a Tim Walker photograph from another. Unfortunately the gallery curators kept a beady eye on us all to prevent much picture taking...although I did manage to sneak a couple as all bloggers know is a must do when faced with something so beautiful that needs to be captured with photographic evidence!
I honestly could have spent my whole day wistfully floating around the beautiful show space, breathing in every inch of Walker's fantasy land, all laid out and showcased with meticulous detail and perfection, complete with a few of the original giant sized props from some of his most iconic and famous shoots. It was like stepping into a dreamworld for an hour or so, and nothing else mattered apart from taking in the surroundings.

If you haven't already, I would urge any Tim Walker fan to visit the exhibition straight away to really know how incredible it was, details can be found from the website here; it's on until the January 27th next year, so still a little time left yet. If anyone has been to visit, what did you think?

    1. Hey girls, thanks for visiting :) I've just been over to your blog and website, what a beautiful vibe you have created there, love it! I thought the pretty pink shorts that you designed for Breast Cancer Awareness were sooo pretty, and your idea of sending them to lots of different girls to wear for a day for your 'sisterhood of the travelling shorts' campaign was inspired, well done. x

    1. Hi there, thanks for visiting :) Yes, it was very impressive to see the props up close, credit must go to the creators of such amazing models, it used to be Shona Heath, not sure who makes them now though. Love your pearly peplum top, so chic! x

    1. Awww that's a shame, it's not as if you're going to SELL the photos....it's only a memento, and if we post exhibition photos on our blogs, we are really only giving the exhibition some free advertising....so I don't think it does any harm? I'm glad you enjoyed the exhibition anyway xo
