Guy Bourdin: A Message for You

Published by Steidl.
Edited by Nicolle Aimee Meyer, Shelly Verthime.

Guy Bourdin created images containing fascinating stories, compositions and colors. Using fashion photography as his medium, Bourdin explored the provocative and the sublime with a relentless perfectionism and sharp humor, breaking with conventions of commercial photography and capturing the imagination of a generation. The late 1970s, widely recognized as the high note of his career, is the focal point of this new edition, which combines in one book the two volumes of the original 2006 publication. The first part of A Message for You shows the legendary, nearly forgotten images and rarely seen variants of a single model, Nicolle Meyer. She appeared in over 30 of Bourdin's famous campaigns for Charles Jourdan and in iconic French Vogue editorials. The second part of the book explores Bourdin's pictorial landscape in a collage of images that maps his artistic vision. The texts, Polaroids, poems, sketches and contact sheets are interspersed with Nicolle Meyer's recollections.

Guy Bourdin: PolaroidsGuy Bourdin: Polaroids

Published by Editions Xavier Barral.
Text by Oliviero Toscani.

One of the Polaroid's acknowledged masters, Guy Bourdin (1928-1991) brought to the medium an uncanny ability to combine the snapshot feel with a strong patina of glamour, and of course plenty of sexiness. A protégé of Man Ray, and best known today for his controversial fashion photography, Bourdin like his teacher often brought an edge of menace or discomfort to his eroticism, with surrealistic props and implied narratives. Like the Surrealists, he often devised ways to bisect the female form, usually by cropping out above the waist; all these traits of Bourdin's fashion photography are to be found here, in this selection of 98 Polaroids, most of which have never previously been published. Ranging in formality from casual seaside erotica to darkened interiors with disembodied legs and arms poking into the frame, these images step outside the safety of the fashion shoot, conjuring a real-life realm steeped in an ominous sexuality.
