The UK’s largest ever exhibition of the influential and enigmatic fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, featuring over 100 works and previously unseen material from the photographer’s estate, from 1955 to 1987 opens at Somerset House, in London next week.
This major exhibition will chart Bourdin’s distinguished 40-year career from Man Ray’s protégé to photography revolutionary in his own right and explore his pursuit of perfection. The exhibited works will exemplify the craftsmanship behind his images, from production to publication, and their enduring quality as a consequence.
