Inspirational photography 1

I’ve been wanting to start a new feature that focuses on photography that inspires me for a while and I wasn’t sure if it should focus on editorials or photographers. I first decided to go for editorials so I could feature my favourite photographers more than once but then realised that some of them don’t actually shoot editorials so it will, in some cases, just be collections of images that appeal to me and fit together in some way.

Tim Walker is probably my favourite photographer of all time, so I decided to start the feature with his recent editorial for issue 7 of LOVE magazine, out last month. The editorial is entitled “the origin of monsters” and features Kristen McMenamy shot with giant insect-related props and wearing armour (two themes that I have been working with recently), exquisitely styled by Katie Grand.
