One/One Thousand: Tim Walker

London-based photographer Tim Walker's fashion images are a big girl's fairy tale picture book. The sets, the staging, the gorgeous colors, and amazing implied stories are simply magical. His shoots, featured in W, all flavors of Vogue, and Harper's Bazaar, are elaborate creative vignettes that depend on the input of many talented contributors like fashion set designer extraordinaire Simon Costin. The results of their collaborative hard work and attention to detail are stunning.

Here's a video that gives you a peek behind the scenes of a typical Walker shoot:

A retrospective of Walker's work was recently staged at London's Design Museum and resulted in a purchase-worthy book of his images available for sale from teNeues. Click the below image for product information.
