Summary:Documenting the development of Guy Bourdin's photography through a chronologically presented sequence of 55 images, this text discusses Bourdin's life and work, placing him both in the context of his time and within the history of photography.
"Guy Bourdin (1928-1991) created some of the most challenging and seductive fashion photographs of the last century. He worked for Vogue Paris for over thirty years, from 1955 to 1987, and his images filled the pages of international fashion magazines throughout the 1970s and 1980s in groundbreaking campaigns for Charles Jourdan, Bloomingdales and Issey Miyake. His glamorous, yet often surreal, work revolutionized the genre of fashion photography, presenting fashion as the luxurious embellishment rather than the subject of his images, which depict dark fantasies of lust, consumption and desire. Bourdin's legacy can still be seen in the work of photographers such as Stephen Meisel and Helmut Newton."--BOOK JACKET.
