Tim Walker


It has been a long time and a super busy term.  There has been lots on lots of changes and huge amounts of fantastic work produced by a whole host of year groups.  More of that in a blog post to follow soon.

Now trips form a huge part of all of your research.  It is a good idea to try and take yourself off to an exhibition at least once a half term.

If you're an AS level Photography student you have already been to see this exhibition, but if not you must get yourself there before it closes at the end of January.

I came across Tim Walker 4 years ago at an exhibition at the Design Museum.  I had temporarily put him to the back of my head- at the time I was overwhelmed by final year at university.  It wasn't until I visited this free exhibition at Somerset House that his magical spell was re-bound!

It is debatable as to whether Walker's pieces are art or photography.  His work is described as 'extravagant in scale and ambition and instantly recognisable for their eye-opening originality, Walker’s photographs dazzle with life, colour and humour.'

I cannot say enough how much you should go to visit this exhibition, whether you are an Art or Textiles student, and whether it fits in your your current project or not you will genuinely be blown away!

Get yourself along to Somerset House- just a short walk from Charing Cross Station.  Entry is free and it is open until 27th January 2013.
