Supersize My Portrait







Love this photo shoot by the legendary Tim Walker — 18th and 19th century aristocratic portraits in England’s Glemham Hall, enlarged so that they appear to burst out of their frames. Such an imaginative way to play with scale. From here (with info on the actual paintings shown) in W magazine.

this has been among my favourites. Tim Walker is always an inspiration... and i think there's much to thank to the prop stylist, too... whose name i shamefully tend to forget...
