#FocusThursday - Tim Walker / by Ryan Henwood-White

"Timothy "Tim" Walker (born 1970) is a British fashion photographer, who regularly shoots for Vogue, W Magazine and LOVE Magazine.

After graduating in 1994, Walker worked as a freelance photography assistant in London before moving to New York City as a full time assistant to Richard Avedon. On returning to England, he initially concentrated on portrait and documentary work for UK newspapers. At the age of 25, he shot his first fashion story for Vogue." - Wikipedia

Tim Walker is an absolutely phenomenal conceptual photographer. He primarily shoots conceptual fashion and portraiture including elements of circus, gender play, distortion, non-sexual nudity, lost civilization and character. Walker clearly has access to a huge design budget bringing elements of fashion, sculpture, architecture and props into the mix. There is a clear eye for detail in his composition and attention to the pose of the subjects. I imagine his process is very time intensive with huge setups and pulldowns for each of these spaces. These images are the product of a sizeable team and an incredible photographer. Truly awe inspiring work. Check more of it out here: timwalkerphotography.com
