From fashion photography for Charles Jourdan to fashion spreads for Vogue Paris and more, the Guy-Bourdin – Image Maker exhibition at Somerset House, London, has it all.

This exhibition celebrates the works of one of the most influential fashion photographers of the 20th century, Guy Bourdin. With over 100 works highlighting his most significant works, its fashion photography heaven and a great way to spend the afternoon.

Highlight of the exhibition is definitely the ‘Walking-Legs’ series. Having accepted a commercial assignment from Charles Jourdan in 1979, Guy Bourdin used mannequin legs instead of a real life model for the campaign, see below, making it quite an eery campaign.
