guy bourdin's long-lost leg shots resurface in a new exhibit
Michael Hoppen Gallery to display Bourdin's vintage shots for Charles Jourdan.
To coincide with Image Maker, the UK's largest ever exhibition of the world renowned fashion photographer, Guy Bourdin, at Somerset House, the Michael Hoppen Gallery will be unveiling a rare selection from Walking Legs, Bourdin's iconic 1979 campaign for Charles Jourdan. With the model mysteriously absent, save for a pair of mannequin legs, adorned with some exquisite Charles Jourdan creations, and shot against quintessentially English landscapes, taken while on a road trip from London to Brighton in a Cadillac, the campaign is one of his most surreal.
Guy Bourdin: Walking Legs will be showing at the Michael Hoppen Gallery from 6th Feb to 28th March
