Tim Walker: Story Teller

Thames & Hudson, £45

 Walker is one of the world’s leading fashion photographers and is celebrated for his sumptuous visual style. In his introduction, Robin Muir notes the debt that Walker’s mise-en-scène owes to the strategies of narrative cinema, particularly the films of Powell and Pressburger.

The book accompanies an exhibition of the same name, supported by Mulberry, at Somerset House in London (until 27 January 2013).
