BOURDIN, Guy. Unseen.

(London): Phillips de Pury & Co., 2007. First edition. Quarto. Surprisingly scarce catalogue published to accompany the exhibition of 41 previously unseen images from the archive of legendary fashion photographer Guy Bourdin. Bourdin’s arresting photographs filled the pages of French Vogue for three decades. His work completely re-shaped the ‘fashion picture’ and today his legacy still lives on in ad campaigns worldwide. Bourdin abandoned the traditional tendency to present the product in an elegant, safe manner, and instead chose to stimulate consumer desire by using models to create intriguing and provocative narratives. This volume reproduces all 41 images from the exhibition. A near fine copy in stiff card covers with printed acetate jacket.
