Dreamscape. Growing up and getting older cuts down one’s drive for imagination — but not for some. Especially for Tim Walker, a London resident who is distinctly regarded as the Peter Pan of British Photography, produces images which attempt to revitalize the inner child of a spectator. Walker is hugely inspired by fairy tales and magic which are hugely evident in his juxtapositions of landscapes and people echoing surrealism and expressionism, which will surely and dearly be delightful to each connoisseur, young and old.
His photographs were published in a number of magazines, and were shown in galleries all over the world, not to mention being featured in Vogue and Vanity Fair, and being exhibited at The National Portrait Gallery, The Design Museum and The Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
