my friend steph and i couldn’t wait to see walker’s almost magical, fairytale artwork in person, and were there bright and early on friday morning, a day after it opened. we entered the east wing galleries and were immediately ensconced in an alice in wonderland, willy wonka, dreamlike fantasyland. tim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut butteredtim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut butteredtim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut buttered

a spitfire crashing through the floor greeted us, followed by an enormous swan boat. alexander mcqueen stared down at us from above a mantlepiece with a skull, grace coddington is hidden beneath her famous mane of flame hair, and john cleese smokes a steaming pipe. tim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut butteredtim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut butteredtim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut butteredtim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut buttered

an enormous giant doll with mary-janes and ringlets looms in the corner of one room, creeping us out. she has popped up in a number of walker’s editorial works, chasing models through the forest and across fields. an equally enormous skeleton leans awkwardly within the arches, while a cricket plays the violin in the next room and a snail slithers down the wall.tim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut butteredtim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut buttered

i loved karlie kloss and the broken humpty dumpty, vivienne westwood with the roses, agyness deyn in the sand dunes… and my absolute favourite was sophia tonge in triplicate with hawthorne blossom – a whimsical fairytale of a picture of a girl on a staircase covered in a jungle of flowers. tim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut butteredmy favourite…tim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut buttered

gooey, dripping sandwiches with pastrami, sauerkraut, russian dressing and swiss cheese with a side of pickles and slaw hit the spot after our hour of picture gazing. tim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut buttered, mishkins, mishkin's covent garden, jewish deli londontim walker, tim walker story teller, tim walker somerset house, somerset house exhibitions, tim walker exhibit, peanut buttered, mishkins, mishkin's covent garden, jewish deli london
