Tim Walker's exuberant fashion photography has dazzled the readers of Vogue and other leading magazines for over a decade. Elaborate staging and romantic motifs characterize his distinctive style. Compiled by Walker himself, a mélange of photo essays and personal pictures as well as scrapbook pages of collages and preliminary studies take us deep into his creative methods. In addition, there is a fascinating array of quotes from Walker, his assistants, fashion editors and models. This volume showcases some of the most imaginative art produced today.
