Not being an avid reader of fashion magazines, I wasn't familiar with Walker's photographs. But his work is so much more than the ordinary series of glossy spreads. I was utterly and completely entranced. The images had the most fabulous Alice in Wonderland quality:
And they invariably captured a very English sensibility:
Tim Walker, Otis Ferry and His Foxhounds, Shropshire, England, 2007, Vanity Fair

Tim Walker Pictures is most definitely worth making a trip into London for. Now I just need to save up my pennies (lots and lots of them) for the limited-edition exhibition catalogue!
