Foto Friday!

In the spirit of Halloween, these images by Tim Walker, seemed very fitting for this Foto Friday. Late last night, while in search of some photographic inspiration, I was carried off to a land of whimsical fantasy, thanks to Tim Walker and his lavishly romantic scenes.



Upon reading about Walker I discovered his first job was working as an assistant to my all time favorite photographer, Richard Avedon. Learning this, I was reminded of a quote by Avedon, "All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth." The “truth” or meaning behind a photograph, film, or other work of art is different for everyone; none of it is correct. The importance lies in the emotion that the piece evokes, and that is completely subjective.




"I know the world that I am painting is not a reality. It is a whim, an entertainment to provoke something in people, whether as escapism or relief. I think that is very valid." – Tim Walker

I encourage all to take a few minutes to escape to Tim’s world, embrace your whimsical side, and see just what it provokes in you…  And really who doesn’t want to live in a land of romance, beauty and couture gowns!?

Happy Friday everyone!

xoxo, Chelsea
