SLEEPING BEAUTY


Dark Shadows: Lindsey Wixson and her giant doll portray a haunting ambience in the editorial ‘Like A Doll’ shot by Tim Walker for Vogue Italia January 2012
”The whole idea of it being terrifying and dark and sinister was something I just hadn’t thought about, even when we were photographing I didnt find it particularly spooky, but in retrospect I look back at this picture that we shot at twilight and I find it… really scary, but at the time of taking it I didn’t see that at all. I didn’t think the picture was going to work. I didn’t like the pink coat, and I wasn’t sure whether she’d stay still enough to not create an unfortunate blur, but then I remember taking the polaroid back and looking at it and thinking actually that’s a really, really dark picture. I think a lot of things in photography come out naturally, you can’t stop them, they are, they live; they are the emotion that we get from that picture, maybe I didn’t put that theme into it or think about it but it’s definitely there - pictures have a life of their own.” - Tim Walker on the hidden beauty and emotion during the moment of this photograph.
