Guy Bourdin: A Message for You

Edited by Nicolle Aimee Meyer, Shelly Verthime.

Guy Bourdin: A Message for YouGuy 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 the 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.

A Guy Bourdin Fashion Week Valentine

A Guy Bourdin Fashion Week Valentine

We're celebrating New York Fashion Week with SteidlDangin's classic Guy Bourdin: A Message for You, collecting the late French fashion photographer's iconic work with dancer, model and muse Nicolle Miller (back in stock at last). "Despite what most people may think," Miller writes, "not all models end up sleeping with the photographer. It is not a given, and it was surely not the relationship I had with Guy. What he always transmitted was a feeling of serious work and the creation of something beautiful. Guy seemed much freer in exploring his artistic vision when he was not bound by the dictates of fashion, even though he never had conceded to them in the first place. Nudity was neutral territory as much as it was loaded with all that is implicit in it. Looking at his pictures today, and with the memory of how it was to work with him, I feel that, truly, he was in awe of the opposite sex, not the misogynist he was labeled to be. There is no vulgarity in his work. Rather, he was a man who was intrigued by women." continue to blog
