Tim Walker’s portraits for the Vogue centenary issue

Notebook: 18 August 2016 | PHOTOGRAPHY


Just filing away some mags and in amongst them is the June 2016 centenary issue of Vogue which I bought specifically for a wonderful set of photos by Tim Walker with styling by Kate Phelan. Tim Walker has worked with Vogue for over 20 years and his photography is known for its sense of theatre and sometimes extravagant and magical settings. The feature consists of 26 portraits of actors, models, artists, photographers and other creatives who ‘capture the spirit of the Vogue century’ and the magazine has devoted a delicious 32 pages to them. Here they are in their entirety in running order. Note how the pictures have been carefully placed and ordered for good flow and pace – colour then monotone, singles then spread, black against white, full bleed then white border, and so on.

Tim Walker has worked together with stylist and fashion editor Kate Phelan on many assignments and here they are chatting together about their most memorable shoots – I love the 1997 Glastonbury festival pictures…
