The Supplement: Tim Walker




Tim Walker is a fashion photographer and filmmaker whose richly constructed sets and fragmented fantasy narratives should have immediate appeal for the CG Arts & Animation student. Indeed, I couldn't help but think of Lydia's recent Twenty To Nine digital set project while enjoying Walker's imagery. Walker's photographs are dreamlike and prickle with uncanny effects.  I love their theatricality and visual splendour.  Walker's worlds are like The Cook, the Thief, his Wife & her Lover meets La Belle et La Bete via Edward Scissorhands.
