Light in the world of Tim Walker

Posted in Work Of Light by studiomakelight on March 24, 2010

Walker’s images evoke a sublime moment in time, evoking a sense of epic drama and beauty. The sets in which his pictures are captured are lavish locations which are juxtaposed against the everyday, mixed with the slightly absurd and outrageous. His photographs tell a narrative which is derived from an imagination which most of us have left behind in our childhood. He presents to his viewer a glimpse into his own imagination, his work reminding us of our capacity to dream the unthinkable.
