Things to do in London: Guy Bourdin: Image - Maker will display the photographer's most significant works. This will include 100 colour exhibition prints, as well as early and late works in black and white that serve to challenge Bourdin’s reputation as a colour photographer. Bourdin worked with the magazine as his medium; he never compromised and instead pushed the boundaries of what fashion photography could achieve.
This major show will chart Bourdin’s distinguished 40-year career from Man Ray’s protégé to photography revolutionary in his own right. In his pursuit of perfection Guy Bourdin was provocative and challenging. His unique eye established itself in advertising and editorial and continues to serve as an inspiration for photographers such as Tim Walker and Nick Knight today.
