Guy Bourdin

An amazing surrealist photographer mainly shaking up fashion photography and using the female body to create something beautiful, sexy and monstrous. He deconstructs, fragments and disembodies the female body.

“Guy Bourdin irreverently swept away all the standards of beauty, conventional morals and product portrayals in one fell swoop. Around the female body he constructed visual disruptions, the outrageous, the hair-raising, the indiscreet, the ugly, the doomed, the fragmentary and the absent, torsos and death – all the tension and the entire gamut of what lies beyond the aesthetic and the moral,” Ingo Taubhorn.
