Guy Bourdin: A Legacy

As part of the season on photography, ICA host a panel discussion about the prolific and provocative fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, whose extensive editorial shoots for French Vogue and Charles Jourdan, among many others, broke conventions of fashion photography. As an image maker the product became secondary to the content and visual composition of his photographs. Controlled composition, hyper real colours, interplays of light and shadow, sensual and surrealist mise-en-scenes showed his artistic contribution to the world of fashion photography. Acclaimed for his cutting edge and daring narratives, the power of his images are still timeless and modern.

The event includes screening rare footage of Guy Bourdin’s cine films that capture his creative process and the fashion culture he witnessed.

Discussing his father’s work alongside Philippe Garner and Judith Clark, will be Samuel Bourdin, the only son of Guy Bourdin and co-author of the publication on his father, Exhibit A: Guy Bourdin.
