London Exhibition: Mr. Vice Guy

Recognized as one of the greatest talents in his field, French fashion photographer Guy Bourdin is known for his unabashed – and at times unnerving – aesthetic. (Warning: NSFW)
Bourdin revolutionized fashion advertising during his nearly 20 year stint for Charles Jourdan by replacing traditional products shots with unconventional story lines and overt sexuality.  Throughout the course of his career, Bourdin was a regular in the pages of Vogue Paris and Harper’s Bazaar, and eventually shot campaigns for Chanel, Emanuel Ungaro and Issey Miyake. London’s renowned Michael Hoppen Gallery presents a series of rare Bourdin photos, including his explosive images from the 1980 Pentax Calendar, in the eponymous exhibition on display from February 2, 2012 – October 3, 2012.  –Christina Mannatt
