Whether you already knew about fashion photographer Tim Walker or not, I’m sure you’ll be amazed by his extraordinary universe presented at the Victoria & Albert Museum!
I must say, my knowledge of fashion photographers is rather narrow – shame on me, I’ll definitely work on that -. But when I heard about Tim Walker’s Wonderful Things exhibition, my curiosity eventually led me to the exhibition trailer published on the Victoria & Albert Museum website and it didn’t take me long to realise that I would love Tim Walker’s unique and creative world!
I firstly let you immerse in his art through the photos below, then you can also read my feedback about the exhibition at the end of the post. 😉 Enjoy!
The more I was discovering his art through the exhibition, the more in awe I was. At first, I thought some of his photos were photoshopped, because there was so many objects of various and disproportionate sizes in them. But then, a video showed the behind the scenes of many photoshoots he did. IN-SANE! Everything you see on his photos was actually on the photoshoot setting. I guess he has every objects he needs done by artisans, which is, in my opinion, even more impressive than adding oversized and crazy objects on a photo with photoshop. Indeed, because he has to have the entire concept and material ready before the photoshoot, and once the photos are taken, he can’t move the objects anymore. Of course, I imagine that he does use photoshop or other photography tools of this kind, particularly for color changes and enhancement, but I would have thought that he used it much more. I mean.. maybe he does, I’m no expert haha. But the way he proceeds from the idea to the photoshoot and final result still remains impressive!
Furthermore, I really love the creativity and sensitivity found in his photos. His imagination appears to be limitless and very well thought out, which I really liked and was impressed by. Also, you can feel that there’s a story behind to the point that you end up caught up in each photo’s atmosphere, whether it’s a joyful, quirky (in a good way) or sombre one.
I won’t spoil more of the exhibition and will finish by saying that I enjoyed this exhibition a lot and recommend you to go if you love fashion, photography, art or anything creative! It’s on until March 2020, so you still have time, but if I were you, I’d be in a rush to go! 😉 Here is the link to the V&A website to get more info about the Wonderful Things exhibition.
I hope you liked this article. Let me know if you have any question or if you went to the exhibition, let me know what you think of it!
