The Tim Walker for W magazine series is a brooding collection of geisha portraits. Each photograph boasts remarkable composition and rich artistic direction. Tim Walker entrances viewers with the darkly alluring photographs, evoking juxtaposed set of emotions. The photographs are brimming with bright colors and desire, but have a strong undertone of violence and a hard earned wisdom. All of this is emphasized by the exaggerated use of form and skewed proportions. Walker also allows the images a certain complexity with his highly theatrical settings.
Tim Walker is a London-based photographer with a keen eye for dark motifs in sunny dispositions. He has been shooting for Vogue for over a decade, while also contributing to many major publications. Walker has received the ‘Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator’ from The British Fashion Council.
