Brett is my biggest inspiration of any photographer I have ever witnessed. When I'm asked by my teachers who my favorite photographer is, I tell them Brett Walker from flickr, then Sally Mann.

Brett Walker awakens the soul, stirs the mind and challenges you to look harder. If you dare. And you must. Without question a true mastermind of his craft.

Reinventa se stesso come una Fenice in un perpetuo movimento. Un meraviglioso iconoclasta della fotografia.

something unique and special: Brett walker

Brett is a clear cut genius, he claims he knows "fuck all about photography" when everyone he really knows he calls the shots. I can't thank him enough for being the best teacher and friend. I would still be stuck fucking around on photoshop with freckles and shiny eyes. Now I drink ginger beer and pretend to take phot… Read more

Brett is a clear cut genius, he claims he knows "fuck all about photography" when everyone he really knows he calls the shots. I can't thank him enough for being the best teacher and friend. I would still be stuck fucking around on photoshop with freckles and shiny eyes. Now I drink ginger beer and pretend to take photos with big shiny cameras, and London is not so scary. I hate him for making photos that distract me and make me take photos, stupid walker mind control. Thank you sir, you are the greatest.

Brett's Photos are like listening to The Smashing Pumpkins on a February morning in Chapel Town Leeds, just as Morrissey pulls up in his new Courteener as tries to sell you some Moody trackys .

He's Miles Davis not playing the obvious, expected note, making you think about the moments between moments. He can shoot like any master and all masters and therefore in my book, is above all. A powerhouse portfolio of in your face rebellion. I've dug through as much work as I can find and nothing touches what you see… Read more

I consider Brett Walker "il maestro" as "the top" photographer of our time to be found on flickr. I'm ispired of his work, every shot is a precious gem .... whenever a new photo is posted, it's an absolute joy for me to see ... a pleasure for my mind. His style and composition continue to amaze me... a true artist..

The first time i saw brett work just knock me down. Its characters strive against the wings of the devil and the hands of God. And always so predictable outstanding! the biggest inspiration!

To capture the soul of a person with a camera is a supremely difficult task - with the advent of digital cameras and the wholesale cheapness and disposability of imagery, we are saturated with pictures of people's faces. When I stumbled across Brett's work, I immediately knew it was something different...deeper and more considered. A lack of artifice and yet each so constructedly artistic - testament to the genius of this man. I find that when making 'personal' portraits of humans, that it is very emotionally exhausting, because you have to give a lot to get a little. Brett must near to the point of exhaustion....in such a good way. Andrew

mr. brett walker must be that 'truly blind' photographer with astonishing level of artistic achievement - producing those genuine, kind of metaphysical gems of photography !

Timelessness embodied.

Timelessness embodied. Take a step into the world of Brett Walker, but only if you have plenty of time to linger... if you'd ever wondered what it might be like to see through the eyes of another, and if this another was not some ordinary folk but someone who is a true visionary... Not a visionary in the ordinary sense, but a true seer, a master in the use of the sense we call vision. Seemingly he blinks, and it comes to be. His images are true marvels, and they express so much about the man himself. I see him as kind and loving, full of a capacity to see beauty where few can see it, and reveal it to us all. In the lines of age or the delicacy of youth, in the battle scars and the sparkling eyes, all becomes equally marvelous in the amazing eye of Brett Walker. This man sees the threads that tie us all together, through all time. I can only hope that he keeps walking, continuing to show his compassion through the ray of hope that beams onto the human race through his sparkling lens.
