Guy Bourdin: Image Maker at the Somerset House
Guy Bourdin was a French fashion photographer known for his provovative fashion images. Somerset House hosts the UK's largest ever exhibition of his work, featuring over 100 works and previously unseen material from the photographer's estate, from 1955 10 1987.
Curated by Alistair O' Neill with Shelly Verthime, the exhibition will also include late works in black and white that serve to challenge Bourdin's reputation as a colour photographer. A highlight will be the "Walking Legs" series (I am a big fan of this!) - a campaign commissioned by Charles Jourdan in 1979.
Guy Bourdin: Image Maker is at the Somerset House from 27 November until 15 March 2015.
Have a great Sunday!
