Blink of An Eye: The Photography of Tim Walker
A few weeks ago, a reader wrote in asking who the photographer was for the Juicy Couture ads I dug way back in 2006. I honestly had no idea, so I dug around a bit and discovered it was Tim Walker, who shoots mainly for the European editions of Vogue and those super-arty fashion mags that all kind of resemble one another. I dug around a bit more (oh, Internet!) and promptly went even more gaga for this British dude's stuff: often compared to Cecil Beaton, it's fanciful, visually baroque, sometimes cheeky and yet oddly serene, with a core of innocence to his work. With his sense of whimsy, I could see him shooting a Francesca Lia Block movie. (With me as the director, of course; we'd work on the Weetzie Bat stories, and maybe The Hanged Man.) He's got a massive photo book called Tim Walker Pictures that I really want, but sadly I can't spend $120 on a book anymore. Or even $80. Oh well. (Kat)
