About The Guy Bourdin Estate
Bourdin's influence, style, and distinct iconography has long pervaded fashion photography. Helping to radically and inventively shape the genre in the twentieth century, Bourdin demonstrated how classical and contemporary imagery could be combined in the realm of fashion photography, with an approach that married exquisite photographic style with evocative innuendo. His seductive images full of uninhibited glamour are best illustrated in his most successful decade of the 1970s. For more information on Guy Bourdin, please visit www.guybourdin.org/.
