Tim Walker - nothing beyond the ordinary

Anyone who can start shooting for Vogue at just 25 must have a prodigious talent, and Tim Walker and his photographs have long been a source of inspiration for me. We certainly used his images as a reference point while we were creating my book Food, Fashion Friends. His photographs are fantastical, whimsical, quirky and even romantic. I love his British eccentricity and his sense of irony, I would even go so far as to say his work is akin to magic realism—to me he’s like the Gabriel García Márquez of photography. Every frame tells a story or makes your eyes widen in wonder… Horses in the drawing room? Beds atop classic cars? Pastel-tinted pigeons? Why? How? Where…? In Walker’s world, these things are nothing beyond the ordinary, which makes his work all the more extraordinary.
