Guy Bourdin: Vogue

Guy Bourdin’s shoots for Vogue between 1955 and 1987 were complete game-changers for the world of fashion photography. Prior to his arrival on the circuit, magazines were saturated with imagery that marginalized women and associated them predominantly with home-making and their lifelong quest to find a man. Bourdin’s imagery brought a richer narrative to the fashion world, taking clothing and turning it into costumes within surrealist set-pieces, effectively making clothes about escapism and standing apart from the crowd, not just fitting in.
