Guy Bourdin Untouched, curated by Shelly Verthime

15th october 2017 - 12th november 2017

Fondazione Sozzani presents two exhibitions photographer Guy BourdinIn Between and Untouched, a selection of photographs from the 50s and 60s curated by Shelly Verthime.

Considered one of the best-known photographers of fashion and advertising of the second half of the 20th century, Guy Bourdin set the stage for a new kind of language in fashion photography.  Always seeking to combine visual effectiveness and elliptic, enigmatic narrative, Bourdin's enigmas often mark his unmistakable style where the essential elements are cancelled, decomposed and reconstructed to create new visions and these fictions are brought to almost surreal extremes.

Untouched – this exhibition presents images that define Bourdin's signature; the formal elements that were developed and refined through the years of commercial work such as the tight compositions, the interplay of light and shadow, image cropping, and his articulation in the double spread image composition.
