By Tim Walker
363 pages; TeNeues
Making an art of insouciance, top British fashion photographer Tim Walker creates romantic, fanciful images—in an enchanted forest, a tree festooned with translucent dresses; in a stately mansion, the cups of a crystal chandelier heaped with ice cream; in a field full of life-size cut-paper birds, a model striking a swanlike pose in an extravagant lace gown. The photo essays and collages in Tim Walker: Pictures, many of which debuted over the past decade in international editions of Vogue, have a puckish sophistication that sets Walker's work apart from that of his peers. These pages, bursting with the artist's exuberant notes, sketches, and snapshots, are a stylish delight.
