Tim Walker: Wonderful People

24.10.2019

Following the highly successful launch of Wonderful Things at The V&A, Michael Hoppen presents Wonderful People by Tim Walker – the first private gallery exhibition of work by the world-renowned photographer.

For this exclusive show, Walker and Hoppen have delved through the archives to uncover wonderful pictures of wonderful people in wonderful places – often doing wonderful things!

Hoppen Gallery have taken the opportunity to celebrate the photographer’s portraiture, exceptional at every turn: from conception, to curation, to finishing. Metro were once again delighted to work with the gallery to produce bespoke mounting and framing for Walker’s existing artworks on show throughout the exhibition, including large-scale, hand-stained frames.

Walker’s portraits bear testimony to his playful and imaginative vision, which conjures extraordinary worlds in which his subjects and friends are immersed. His sitters don’t merely sit for Tim, but are transformed by the roles they assume within his fantastical imaginative landscape.

Wonderful People opens late October and will run until early 2020, more info on exhibition and visiting times can be found here.

Exhibition Dates: 25 OCT 2019 – 25 JAN 2020

Michael Hoppen Gallery, London
