Guy Bourdin - Image Maker: Somerset House, London

Somerset House plays host to another prolific fashion photographers work this year; Guy Bourdin, Image Maker. This wonderfully curated exhibition features iconic images from the 70's as Bourdin magically creates provocative imagery documenting a 'story within a story' and explores key British landmarks as a setting for his fashion advertisement shots. The role of the mannequin is touched on throughout his work; taking on a lifeless representation of women and a narrative which is left for the viewer to build. An absolute must see!
