Stranger Than Paradise
Obsession | Tim Walker and Tilda Swinton’s surreal fashion adventure.
Tim Walker is one of the most visually exciting and influential fashion photographers working today. He is known by reflecting his dreamlike fantasies into theatrical extravagant images.
British photographer shot his first fashion editorial for Vogue at the age of 25 and he has photographed countless editorials for W Magazine, LOVE Magazine and I-D ever since.
‘The kind of theatrical photographs I take are so in danger of being kitsch and gimmicky,’ he says. ‘The performances are slightly hammy; it’s a dangerous line to tread. The sets are a way of bringing the picture back to something beautiful.’
Here is the ‘Stranger Than Paradise’ for the May 2013 issue of W Magazine with amazing Tilda Swinton.
