Who Will Dare to Forget the Extreme Excellence of Guy Bourdin?

Remembrances of Excellency Past: Artist Guy Bourdin, “A key player in the transformation of fashion photography from being about the product to emphatically being about the image, Bourdin constructed scenarios of sexual danger and sadistic allure, voyeuristic thrills and murderous passion. Female bodies of mannequin stillness and corpse-like chill feature in what look like stills from a soft-porn film directed by Hitchcock at his darkest.” —Elisabeth Mahoney, The Guardian
