Guy Boudin: Image Maker

Starting today, London's Somerset House hosts the UK's largest ever exhibition of the work of fashion photographer Guy Bourdin.

Bourdin established the idea that the product is secondary to the image, and his distinctive style still serves as a source of inspiration to photographers working in the industry today.

The exhibition features over 100 of Guy Bourdin's works, spanning his 40 year career, including a selection of paintings, working drawings, sketches and notebooks, not previously seen in the UK.

Somerset House is also currently showing 'Chris Stein/Negative: Me, Blondie, and The Advent of Punk', an exhibition of previously unseen photographs of the band taken by Stein himself, as well as 'Fashioning Winter', to coincide with the opening of the ice rink, so I'll definitely be paying a visit before Christmas!  
  

'Guy Bourdin: Image Maker' runs until 15th March, 2015.  For more details click here
