During his lifetime, fashion photographer Guy Bourdin was beyond prolific, he was ground-breaking in the fashion industry for imbuing his photographs and advertisements with a striking, and at times troubling, artistic and surrealist edge. After his death, he became a legend. But what extended well beyond his lifetime was the enigma which surrounded him. Bourdin was known for never having published a book or put on an exhibition during his lifetime. And in death, his works remained some of the most closely guarded in the industries of fashion and photography. So it is then with immense prestige that Michael Hoppen Gallery for contemporary art in London has the honor of unveiling some of Bourdin’s most iconic photographs– those of the Walking Legs.
