“Jean Cocteau really influenced me, especially his film Beauty and the Beast”, so said Tim Walker.

“I love the fact that the house in this photoshoot is falling into decay, its inhabitants have become part of the building, they will keep on living here forever, only appearing when other people come; it’s as if the house were a living being, composed of the building itself and its former dwellers.” Walker has been long dreaming of creating pictures that would combine his obsession for decay, mythology, and the vanished grandeur of the most exclusive couture, but only recently he’s found the perfect place. “Howick Hall, the home of Earl Grey,” he explains, “has been closed since the Thirties and it’s very spectacular, romantic, tumbledown; its rooms are huge, there’s still the tapestry from the 1920s, almost torn to pieces. The old doors and structures created the perfect atmosphere for our magical sets.”
