Tim Walker, Pictures

08 January 09

I went to the Tim Walker exhibition at The Design Museum some time in september, but forgot all about the photos until just now. It was fantastic though! I liked seeing the sketchbooks and scrapbooks the most, I'm a nosy parker so I always like looking at other people's ideas and references. There were bits of sets and props and that great big model of a camera in the middle of the room too. Such a great exhibition, I do love The Design Museum.

There's an mp3 interview with Tim Walker about the exhibition that's quite interesting here and all about the pastel cats (my favourite!) here.

Yesss! I love when museums allow visitors to take photos. It’s so helpful to those of us who never have a chance to go ourselves! So thank you for sharing these… Fun to see what a K1000 would look like were it larger than life, too!

I blogged about it as well (http://filthypawsandsilkydrawers.blogspot.com/) ! It was beautiful, one of the best exhibitions I’ve ever been too :) The book is brilliant to flick through as well as!

I always wonder how they let you take pictures at museums, etc… I’m always too shy to ask :/

Yes! One of my favourite inspirations of all time, this guy is my idol.
I didn’t get to see the exhibition as I was in the USA at the time, which is a shame because these pics make it look awesome, so thanks for these!

I’m completely jealous that this exhibition is happening in the Uk and not NYC. I love your blog!

Looks like a very inspiring exhibition.

Wonderful. I love the balloon covered castle……someone else was just talking about balloons and I just did a little balloon sketch for my five year old. Must be the year of the balloon. Sounds like fun to lighten things up a bit.

Anyway, wonderful post, very inspiring.

I went to see the exhibition back in May and I loved it. The pictures were one of the most inspiring things I’ve seen. I even bought the book.

Beautiful pictures of beautiful art! Wonderful. Especially that first image. Gosh!

Amazing pictures! The one with the baloons and the castle reminds Lily Alen’s video “The Fear”. Could it be he was shooting it in the same location???
