The Red Dress

The Red Dress by Nigel Walker

Red is the colour of love, passion, power and danger, and the red dress is said to ‘muddle men’s minds.’  Exploiting the visual language of photography, Nigel Walker has created a series of story-telling images. Each picture captures a single moment in time. They feature a red dress, which provides a narrative clue to an experience or challenge that a woman might face.  Some are funny, others tender or heart-rending.  All are compelling. Furthermore, The Red Dress invites viewers to consider the meanings associated with colour and question how personal and cultural experience can shape and determine our understanding.   

As a fine art photographer, Nigel Walker has been taking pictures for over fifty years. The topic might be landscape, portrait or documentary, but they all tell a story.  As a gallery owner and curator, he understands the appeal of strong images and compelling stories.  His work has been widely exhibited and he is a frequent speaker on ‘the art of storytelling through photography’.  To discover more visit
