Guy Bourdin was the most groundbreaking fashion photographers who ever lived. In the creative circles, however, he is looked back upon as a legend. He was nothing short of an artist, one with the ability to slip between mediums, and bringing the compositions of a painter together with the aesthetics of a fashion creative under the discerning eye of a photographer; one who understood the true power of desire and intrigue. He used sex, mystery, and a particular brand of black humor to seduce the eye. He subverted convention, walked the line between beauty and the grotesque and broke all the pre-ordained fashion photography rules.
