Tim Walker ‘Story Teller’

I had the pleasure of previewing Tim Walker’s ‘Story Teller’ prop orientated Exhibition at Somerset House for F.Tape last month, I also got to interview the man himself! You can imagine how excited I was – he even signed my copy of the exhibition book!

Take a look at the review and interview over on F.Tape here

As Tim Walker is one the ultimate fashion photographers, it really was an honour to meet him. Here’s a few of my favourite pieces in the exhibition:

The doll prop used in Vogue Italia January ’12 issue (pictured below) with storyboard on the right.

The skeleton prop from Harpers Bazaar October ’09 issue.
See the making of on prop maker Andy Hillman’s website.

Props used from the Monty Python editorial for Vanity Fair November ’09 issue.

Loved this insect orchestra made especially for the exhibition!

You gotta love Alber Elbaz.
Tim Walker said he was very fun to work with although he didn’t much like full length photo’s…

There’s still time to go visit the exhibition – it’s a fantastic and very well curated, the main focus are the props in which Mr.Walker points out everything in the images are REAL with no use for digital manipulation. Plus it’s free!
