Tim Walker and his Earth GirlsPosted June 01 2012
After meeting Tim Walker at the Vogue Festival last month, we thought it would be appropriate to take a look back at that very first shoot he took with former fashion editor Kate Phelan 14 years ago. Twelve pages of muddy fields and cloudy skies with touches of bold colour. Walker somehow managed to create a magical shoot out of a bad situation. Of course, it wasn´t all that bad - he worked alongside models Kirsty Hume, Trish Goff and with a bunch of high end clothes - but unfortunately the weather did not accompany. Tim gave this shoot as an example of how some of his strongest photographs are not necessarily planned to perfection. In fact, the spontaneous ones are often the most memorable.
