Boschian Photography by Tim Walker (NSFW)

British fashion photographer Tim Walker has been known for his painterly fashion. Walker's "Garden of Earthly Delights" compromises of nude portraits and figures, carefully posed in seemingly casual and nonchalant moods, emitting old-world aesthetic qualities in them.

The series was commissioned by the Nicola Erni Collection, where Walker is making his dream project come true by channeling the works of 15th-century Dutch master painter Hieronymus Bosch -- an echo of the "Garden of Lusts", centralizing beauty, healthy and glamour.

The images have almost all elements that can be found in a Bosch painting -- bubble with veins, shells, strawberries, vines, snakes., and were taken in a country house in Northumberland, meant for the Valentino couture.

The exhibition Tim Walker: The Garden of Earthly Delights will be showing at the Noordbrabants Museum in Hertogenbosch, November 4, and will run through February 25, 2018.
