Nature Magique

By Guy Bourdin

With surrealism, sharp humour and a deeply radical approach, Guy Bourdin (1928 – 1991) changed the scene of photography. His work, whether in editorial or advertising broke aesthetic conventions, always characterized by a dramatic intensity and relentless perfectionism. Generations of photographers and visual artists from Sarah Moon and Märta Thisner to Inez & Vinoodh, regard Bourdin as an inspiration. His influence has transcended time and the ebb and flow of fashion, positioning his work within the context of contemporary art.

‘Nature Magique’ is published to coincide with the exhibition ‘Avant-Garde’ at Fotografiska Museet in Stockholm, Sweden, which runs from November 27, 2015 to February 21, 2016. The book explores the theme of nature in Bourdin’s work which seems to have had an underlying influence. Nature Magique contains 33 images and a print stamped and numbered by The Guy Bourdin Estate. Nature Magique is an edition of 100 and is available exclusively at Fotografiska Museet, Stockholm.
