With eyes of a painter, Guy Bour­din cre­ated im­ages that told fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries de­scribed as in­tense, haunt­ing, and un­for­get­table. The cu­ri­ous self-taught French photographer worked with many of the world’s lead­ing fash­ion houses and mag­a­zines, such as Chloé and Harper’s Bazaar, and be­came a true leader in ad­ver­tis­ing and fash­ion. Known for ex­tend­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of pho­tog­ra­phy with his pow­er­ful artis­tic vi­sion, the star photographer es­tab­lished the idea that the prod­uct should come sec­ondary to the im­age. Dis­cover Guy Bour­din’s legacy in the Ber­lin-based ex­hi­bi­tion that in­tro­duces both iconic and lesser-known im­ages from publi­ca­tions along­side his vi­sion­ary work with French de­signer Charles Jour­dan. “Guy Bour­din: Im­age Maker” is on view at the Hel­mut New­ton Foun­da­tion in Ber­lin from De­cem­ber 1st, 2017 un­til May 13th, 2018.
