“So build yourself as beautiful as you want your world to be. Wrap yourself in light then give yourself away with your heart, your brush, your march, your art, your poetry, your play. And for every day you paint the war, take a week and paint the beauty, the colour, the shape of the landscape you’re marching towards. Everyone knows what you’re against; show them what you’re for.”
— Andrea Gibson

9. Tim Walker at Somerset House. Because seeing props from your favourite photo shoots in real life is priceless.
One thing I love about Tim Walker is his use of Kirsi Pyrhonen. She is one of very few elite models who always gives something unexpected in a shoot – something I think worked beautifully for her in Vogue UK’s “An Awfully Big Adventure” for their December 2011 issue. With the beautiful styling of Kate Phelan, the photos turned out to be everything that we now expect from a Tim Walker spread: humour and meaning which duel with the excess. Swoon. View Post
Vogue Italia spent quality time with Tim Walker for their spooky, March 2011 spread entitled “Dreaming of Another World“. We have the intriguingly haunted Guinevere van Seenus – styled by Jacob K – in some sort of fashion-obsessed, Moonshine-enhanced dream sequence. Officially the most eerie way to knock it out of the part, hombres. View Post
“The Right Lines” is the most visionary spread I’ve seen in 2011. Vogue UK‘s super stylist, Kate Phelan, has done it again for their April issue. I just adore the composition of Lindsey Wixson, Kirsi Pyrhönen and the pastel-painted world around them; photographer Tim Walker‘s vision is oh-so-clear. View Post
