Pupils engaged with the museum’s permanent collections before moving on to the main event of the day, the popular Tim Walker exhibition.
Titled Tim Walker: Wonderful Things, Walker’s latest photographic phenomenon forays into the fantastical, as he takes the viewer on an immersive journey into his extraordinary creative process.
One of the world’s most inventive photographers, Tim Walker’s unusual approach first captured the imaginations of anyone rifling through the pages of Vogue Magazine in the mid 1990s. More on Tim Walker and his work can be found here.
