Delving deep into the art and mind of one of the most exciting and original fashion photographers working today, Tim Walker: Shoot for the Moon showcases the gamut of Tim Walker’s weird, wild Wonderlands. In images that demand to be read as art as much as fashion, his signature opulence and decadent eccentricity encroach ever further beyond the ‘real’, exploring the mysteries of imagination and inspiration, and where it is they come from.
Dazzlingly designed to a lavish spec, with images featuring some of the biggest names in fashion and contemporary culture, and texts and commentary by a collection of noteworthy contributors as well as Walker himself, Tim Walker: Shoot for the Moon is set to be an unmissable addition to the lexicon of fashion photography.
