Walker meets The Sound

Tilda Swinton by Tim Walker for W, Aug 2011 6

Tim Walker – Tilda Swinton ( Iceland, 2011 )

Journalist. Many photographers think that photographing actors is the hardest of all because they are always performing as someone else, even in real life. Is that true?

Walker: It’s true in a way. But when you photograph someone like Tilda Swinton, she always channels the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz and you have to think; of all the millions of people she could draw from, why the wicked witch? It’s because she sees something in that character that mirrors her personality, and that’s very revealing.
