Legendary Fashion Photographers - Guy Bourdin
One of the most recognized names in Fashion ad Advertising Photography of the second half of the 20th century.
His style is bold, full of color and strongly recognizable.
He was mentored by none other than Man Ray.
Bourdin’s images offer a radical alternative to traditional Fashion Images, they are richly sensual, provocative and shocking. He adds erotic, surreal and sinister components to them. Those elements resonated with a new vocabulary for Haute-Couture goods and took him to the top of luxury Fashion.
As an artist, he is considered a pop-surrealist (sounds familiar a little bit, David Lachapelle), influenced by Man Ray, Edward Weston, Magritte, Balthus and Luis Buñuel.
