Guy Bourdin - Image Maker / Helmut Newton - A Gun for Hire

Museum für Fotografie | Berlin
Price
€5 - €10
Presentation
Guy Bourdin revolutionized fashion photography in the late 20th century, similar to Helmut Newton. Both were the star photographers of Vogue Paris and produced some of the most iconic images of that era working for the top international fashion houses. While their medium was the magazine, they approached it with avant-garde point of view and sharp humour. Unique as they were, they both broke aesthetic conventions achieving a sense of timeless glamour in their editorials and advertising and independently of one another developing a sense of “radical chic.”

In 1970s at the peak of their career while they photographed magazine editorials, Newton shot the collections of clients such as Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Thierry Mugler, Mario Valentino and Blumarine. Simultaneously, Bourdin photographed collections such as Versace, Ungaro, Chloe, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent while in addition he found a prime client in Charles Jourdan -the French shoe brand -that lasted over 15 years.

Now, for the first time ever Helmut Newton Foundation will showcase the iconic works by these two influential fashion photographers with an extensive exhibition in Berlin to celebrate their visionary artistic contribution and their enduring legacy
Hours

The exhibition is over since the 13/05/2018
