The work of legendary fashion photographer Guy Bourdin is set to take over Somerset House...
Over 100 of legendary fashion photographer Guy Bourdin's most provocative works are set to go on display at London's Somerset House this autumn.
The lead event on the museum's just-announced winter calendar, Guy Bourdin: Image-Maker will be the largest-ever curation of the late photographer's photos, celebrating his signature approach; fashion imagery that 'tiptoed to the edge of pornography.'
Glossy, edgy and thought-provoking, Bourdin's unique vision, particularly from the 1950s to the 1980s, has seen him hailed as one of the greatest fashion photographers of all-time.
Also on the Somerset House Autumn schedule - two other unmissable, stylish events.
The Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie and The Advent of Punk exhibit features unseen photographs of famous figures from the 70s and 80s, taken by Blondie’s co-founder Chris Stein, while Fashioning Winter will showcase nine winter trends from the past century, from Belle Époque Paris to Alexander McQueen's Narnia-esque catwalk shows, coinciding with the always-fun 'Skate at Somerset House'.
The dates for each exhibition are as follows: Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie and The Advent of Punk: 5 November – 25 January Fashioning Winter: 11 November – 11 January Guy Bourdin: Image-Maker: 27 November – 15 March
