Step through the looking glass

Over Tim Walker’s prolific career he has shot some truly breathtaking beauty looks. A true storyteller, Walker’s work trades in fantasy. In Walker’s world, the laws of proportion, perspective, and gravity do not apply. These are fairytale settings, surreal and dreamy.  

This weekend, the V&A opens its new exhibition. Wonderful Things steps into the mind of Tim Walker, peering deep into his imagination. Four years in the making, this is the largest-ever exhibition of his work. To celebrate, we dug through the archives to find Walker’s most exquisite beauty shots. So follow us through the looking glass.
