TIM WALKER ‘STORYTELLER’ AT SOMMERSET HOUSE LONDON

写真家ティム·ウォーカーの展覧会「TIM WALKER STORY TELLER」に足を運んでみた。
ロンドンのサマーセットハウスを会場に、作り込まれたウォーカー部屋がズラリ。ファッション誌やキャンペーン撮影でもセットのような作り込みを手掛け、ユニークでファンタジー溢れるウォーカー物語。彼が撮り下ろした写真作品はもちろん、これまでに制作した映像やオブジェなどが展示されている。なかでもシャーリー・テンプルの巨大人形はインパクト大。著名人のポートレイト部屋では、貴重すぎるアレキサンダー・マックイーンにアンナ・ピアッジ、アルベール・エルバス、ヴィヴィアン・ウエストウッドらの写真が展示されている。イギリスブランド、マルベリーをスポンサーに2013年1月27日まで行われている。ロンドンにいる方は是非足を運んでみるべし!

Tim Walker, photographer and artist, creates dreamscapes beyond simple photography. His work for VOGUE celebrates the fantastical in fashion with neither kitsch nor over retouching distracting from the beuty of that what he shoots. Upon the release of his recent book ‘Storyteller’, British brand Mulberry supported the opening of a likewise named exhibition at Somerset House by the banks of the Thames in London. Finishing on January 20th 2013, the exhibition is a must see. It places the intricate over sized props from shoots amongst walls of photos in which they are featured, as well as quotes from Walker himself. Whilst these large production images are amazing in themselves, for me the most striking thing about Walker’s body of work is how he has managed to stamp his individual style on white background portraits. With a hint of whimsy and using a beautiful fresh light he manages to capture something really special in his subjects like the images of Alexander McQueen, Anna Piaggi, Alber Ebaz and Vivienne Westwood on this page.

Tim Walker’s Book ‘Storyteller’ is out now.
