Picking apples in my Grandmothers orchard, climbing the trees and turning into a fairy. Lead soldier wars and dreams of flying... Going home for dinner straight from your fresly-build castle or another exciting overseas cruise... As we grow up, our childchood becomes imaginary kingdom. Imaginary - for most of us, but for some - more real than reality.
Tim Walker, the Peter Pan of British photography, creates images that can be seen only with our inner child's eyes. He evokes long-forgotten memories, invites us to the other side of the mirror. Surreal or magic realism? It's not only the whimsical beauty that makes his narrative photo-stories unforgetable: they are created with true love, based on collective unconscious archetypes and cultural symbols, easily-read, mysteriously touching. Alive.
Tim Walker works mostly on fashion projects, his photograps were published in numerous magazines (Vogue,Vanity Fair etc.) all over the world and exhibited at The National Portrait Gallery, The Design Museum and The Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
