Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars - Norman Vincent Peale
Tim Walker s monograph Story Teller, published by Thames & Hudson, introduced audiences to this unique photographer s fantastical, magical worlds, conjured anew with each shoot. But every point must have its counterpoint, day its night, light its dark; creativity is no different. Shoot for the Moon, Walker s much anticipated followup, draws audiences close to reveal fantasy s other, darker side.
Delving deep into the art and mind of one of the most exciting and original fashion photographers working today, Shoot for the Moon showcases the gamut of Walker s weird, wild Wonderlands. In images that demand to be read as art as much as fashion, his signature opulence and decadent eccentricity encroach ever further beyond the real , exploring the mysteries of imagination and inspiration, and where it is they come from.
Dazzlingly designed to a lavish spec, with images featuring some of the biggest names in fashion and contemporary culture, and texts and commentary by a collection of noteworthy contributors as well as Walker himself, Shoot for the Moon is set to be an unmissable addition to the lexicon of fashion photography.
