The Magical World of Tim Walker

Sifting through my favourite editorials of the past year or so, I noticed one recurring component - photographer Tim Walker.

Remember that post I did on Vogue meets Mongolia? Mr. Walker creates fashion fairy tales. Loaded with fantastical props, literary references and slightly eerie drama, Tim draws you in and leaves you wanting more. Here a selection to give you a taste.

1. Mechanical Dolls

Vogue Italia, October 2011 - Sad and surreal, a mix of clockwork Pinocchio and vintage harlequin.

2. White Mischief

British Vogue, May 2011 - a fashion nod to Evelyn Waugh's (anti)colonialist 1932 satire "Black Mischief". And a surprsingly romantic Agyness Deyn. 

3. Tim Burton - Tricks and Treats

Harper's Bazaar, October 2009 - celebrating a MoMA retrospective of Tim Burton's work. Morbidly fabulous freaks.
