Tim "bakes a photograph"! He keeps scrapbooks that are filled with magazine/newspaper clippings, pictures of places that he visits and anything else that inspires him. He calls these things "random ingredients". His mom was a cook and she emphasized the importance of each and every ingredient when cooking. So when he takes a picture, the people, the background, the costumes, set design, fashion, hair and makeup ARE ALL INGREDIENTS. I love that! He acknowledges that ALL of those components are needed in making fabulous pictures.
The Tim Walker Storyteller Exhibit!
If you're a huge fan of Tim's work like I am, Mulberry is overseeing an exhibit which will be held at Somerset House (London) from October 18, 2012 through January 27, 2013.
The exhibit is entitled "Tim Walker: Storyteller". I can only imagine how fabulous its going to be. I can't get there, but maybe some of my UK blog buddies can.
There's also a book that showcases his photography, that can be purchased from many places (amazon, target etc). That would be a fabulous Christmas present. I want! HaHa
Below is just a sample of his unique talent and artistry. I also attached a video where he talks about what ingredients are needed to "bake a photograph".
Enjoy and Have A Great Day!
