STORY TELLER

256 Page Book & Exhibition at Somerset House, East Wing Galleries, East Wing, Somerset House, Strand, London 18th October 2012 - 13th January 2013 | Photography by Tim Walker | Exhibition Printing and Colour grading: Touch | Book Published by Thames & Hudson

Walker’s photographs provide the focus of the exhibition, but the camera, he claims, ‘is simply a box put between you and what you want to capture’.

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of events that feature many of Tim Walker’s long-time collaborators and uncover the influences and stories behind his work. There will be workshops for all ages offering visitors the opportunity to work with some of the set designers and prop builders who have worked with Tim Walker throughout his career and talks will include Tim Walker in Conversation with Penny Martin. Throughout the exhibition there will also be the opportunity to see a series of films specially curated by Tim Walker. Made up of films that have inspired and influenced many of his images, they will include cult movies such as La Belle at la Bete, The Red Shoes, A Matter of Life and Death and Tim’s own first feature The Lost Explorer.
