Guy Bourdin

The films of Guy Bourdin featured at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Perhaps Madonna can find some futher inspiration in the catalogue.

Bourdin's high profile years, in the 1970's saw his images featured on the pages of top fashion magazines. Already in his mid forties by this time, his editorial and advertising photography broke with conventions of fashion imagery in radical ways. His photographs of carefully staged narratives plunge the viewer into a fantasy world of glamour, pleasure, danger and suspense.
