So... after a lovely lunch I made my way over to the Design Museum
to take in the 'Richard Rogers + Architects
' and 'Tim Walker
' exhibitions (as well as some of the delicious cake).
Richard Rogers is the influential architect behind the Pompidou Centre
in Paris, the Lloyds Building
and the Millennium Dome
, both in London. His work is dynamic, experimental and always pushing the boundaries. The scale models are fantastic. I love the miniature cars and people - there is always one doing something weird, I guarantee it!
It was the Tim Walker
exhibition though, that stole the afternoon, it was wonderful. Tim Walker is a renowned fashion photographer whose images regularly grace the pages of Vogue
His images are fascinating. They are conceptual and imaginative, some are dreamy and elegant while others are beautiful, but chaotic. My favourites are the pastel animals, in particular the cats. The exhibition also displayed some of the over-sized props from the photoshoots, as well as some of Walker's sketchbooks, showing his thought processes, ideas, references and inspirations which give a real insight into his work.
