Tim Walker Pictures: The Book


British fashion photographer, Tim Walker's recently released book, Tim Walker: Pictures, is available online. It is jam-packed with photos of his stunning photography. He is best known for his contributions to just about every country's Vogue magazine. In addition, he explored and helped collate Vogue's extensive holdings of Cecil Beaton's negatives.

"His images capture a sublime moment in time, evoking a sense of epic drama and beauty. Stunning sets and lavish locations juxtapose the everyday with the absurd and the fabulous, to create captivating, original photographs." -London Architecture Diary


This famous photo (above) of supermodel Lily Cole posed on a decaying ornate spiral staircase in an abandoned palace in India is featured in the book. Gorgeous.






These photos are so whimsical and have a very vintage feel to them."Dreamlike", don't you think?



You can order the book here at TeNeues books for $125. The book is quite heavy at 10.5 pounds! There is also a 2009 photo calendar available. I think I'm going to have to spring for a book! Perhaps a calendar too?


You can also see more of his work here at Thomas Treuhaft.


All photos, Tim Walker
