Tim Walker was born in 1970 in England. As a child, Tim was inventing many fabulous images and fictional worlds. At the age of 12, he became interested in photography. Tim began his career as a photographer after taking third place in one of the independent photography contests. Later he received a degree in photography from the University of Exeter and worked as an assistant to the great American photographer Richard Avedon and learned a lot from him.
According to Tim's words, "in the work of the photographer he liked to put everything in its place, create the right atmosphere and select outfits."
In the late 1980s, Tim worked with the archives of Cecil Beaton at Condé Nast, which left a deep impression on the young photographer. From that time Tim developed his own style, characterized by extravagant productions and romantic images.
