Guy Bourdin, Image Maker

Somerset House in London is currently showing a major exhibition of Guy Bourdin’s photography from across his career.  Bourdin was a trailblazing photographer, infusing fashion imagery with his own artistic expression. Rich and strange, his iconic style brought in layers of social commentary to a consumer audience. Bourdin’s works bear the strong Surrealist influence of famed photographer Man Ray, his teacher.

This post features just a taste of the exhibition.  The images read as quite contemporary, but most were taken in the 60s and 70s.
