Somerset House presents the biggest exhibition ever made in the UK of fashion photographer Guy Bourdin. The photographer worked essentially in the editorial and advertising fields, being a reference in fashion photography of the 20th century, thanks to his unique style of visual narrative.
The show gathers more than 100 examples of Bourdin's enigmatic work, and exhibits for the first time some material from the artist's estate. On display there are elements of the photographer’s working process, which offer a fascinating view of how the artist made his compositions in a pre-digital era.

Runs until 15 March 2015.
