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

Tim Walker, Stella Tennant and pink powder cloud, 2007

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.

Don't miss

The photographs in this exhibition were taken in the grounds of Eglingham Hall in Northumberland, an historic mansion with faded grandeur. The combination of tumbledown country house and high fashion are at the heart of Walker’s style - one that celebrates the magical allure of fashion, its glamour, its humour and its utterly outlandish charm.
