An exhibition celebrating the fashion photographer with an impish sense of humour, famed for taking couture to a surreal level.

Tim Walker began his career working for the iconic photographer Richard Avedon in New York before returning to Britain to become a regular at Vogue. Famed for his quirky approach to the fashion industry, he photographed Alexander McQueen leaning on a skull and a model leaping from the broken remains of Humpty Dumpty.

There is always a decadent, Miss Haversham style romanticism to Walker’s pictures that puts the art of fashion centre stage.
