Guy Bourdain at Fotografiska

Written by Michaela Widergren

For all of you who knows photography well, Guy Bourdain is a familiar name. But for those of you who doesn’t know his name or his work, we can tell you he’s a bit of an icon. As the protégé of Man Ray, what can you expect? The Parisian Guy was mostly known for his editorial work with Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. He also photographed extravagant campaigns for Chanel, Issey Miyake, Versace and many more. The aesthetics of Bourdain was at the time groundbreaking. His imagery was always surreal, radical and humours. The colours were bold and the shapes strong. Bourdain was a perfectionist and has inspired many photographers such as Sarah Moon and Inez & Vinoodh.

You will be able to see the work of Guy Bourdain at Fotografiska in Stockholm until the 21st of February.
