Milan, Galleria Carla Sozzani

Milan’s design mecca gives show to one of the more masterful British fashion photographers working today. A regular photographer for the British, Italian and American editions of Vogue, Walker started in the archives of Cecil Beaton, moving on to New York to be a full-time assistant to Richard Avedon, and today can claim The Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery in London as including his works in their permanent collections.

Words are put to little use when describing the fantasy life that Tim Walker creates in images. He gives visual life to the playful nuances found throughout centuries of British literature, and to the delicate irony found in British humor daily.

With stunning sets, always infused with an elevated sense of drama, of the absurd, and childlike imaginative fancy, each photograph conveys elegance and precise composition, indicative of the masters he apprenticed.

His most famous works will be on display, as well as new work that has not yet been exhibited.
