TIM WALKER
蒂姆·沃克


Tim Walker (born 1970) is a British fashion photographer, lives in London. Tim Walker is one of the most visually exciting and influential fashion photographers working today. Staging and romantic motifs characterise his style. Extravagant in scale and ambition and instantly recognisable for their eye-opening originality, Walker’s photographs dazzle with life, colour and humour.

Walker has a very specific take on fashion photography. His work is theatrical, bordering on surrealist and incredibly romantic. Every fantastical scene is created with props, and all the meticulously crafted tableaux existed at some point. Walker strives to create his pictures within what he calls “the parameters of the impossible” – something has to be physically, rather than digitally, possible for the picture to register with the viewer.

“Fantasy isn’t something I put into the pictures; I don’t try and inject them with a sense of play. But it’s about being an honest photographer;
a photograph is as much of a mirror of the photographer as it is the subject.”

“我不想將幻覺放入我的作品,我不會嘗試帶著娛樂性的 把幻覺注入我的作品,作為一名真誠的攝影師,照片不 僅是拍攝物體的映像,同時也是攝影師的鏡子。”

“Your aim as a photographer is to get a picture of that person that means something. Portraits aren’t fantasies; they need to tell a truth.”

“作為一名攝影師,你的目標是得到一 張圖片,一張附有內涵的關於被拍攝者 的圖像。肖像本身是沒有吸引力的,除 非他們能講出真實的故事。”

“Fashion photography allowed me to explore dreams and fantasy, and that’s what I love about it.”

“時尚攝影可以讓我去探索夢幻和想像的邊界,這正是我為什麼這麼喜歡我的工作。”
