Tim Walker: Wonderful Things

Getty Museum, Los Angeles

Tim Walker's touring solo exhibition Wonderful Things - which first opened at the V&A, London in 2019 - opens on May 2nd at The Getty Center in Los Angeles. 


The exhibition pays tribute to Walker's distinctive contribution to image-making while also highlighting the work of his creative collaborators: set designers, stylists, makeup artists, models, and muses. At the heart of the show is a new series of photographs directly influenced by his research into the collections of the Getty Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

In 2016, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), the world’s largest museum of applied and decorative arts, invited the internationally acclaimed fashion photographer Tim Walker to delve into its vast and eclectic collection. Walker selected an array of “wonderful things,” the art and design objects that served as inspiration for the series of nine photo shoots at the heart of this exhibition. In the same spirit, the Getty Museum invited Walker to explore its collection and embark on a tenth photo session. Photographs inspired by the two paintings Walker chose are on view here for the first time.
