Another Tim Walker Reference

Tim Walker has been my favourite fashion photographer for years. I'm amongst thousands of fans who have been influenced by his work and it's always interesting to see when people copy reference his images. Lily Allen's video for The Fear involved a mansion covered with balloons, just like one of Tim's most famous photographs.

Most recently, Rihanna's video for Only Girl (in the world) directed by Anthony Mandler was heavily influenced by Tim Walker. Just take a look at my comparisons.

It turned out to be an incredibly beautiful video, and put Tim Walker's ideas into film rather well. Some of the outfits were also fantastic. See the video here.
