Details: Product Description 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.--Rachel Tashjian "Vanity Fair" Review timeless images from one of the first fashion provocateurs whose singular way of seeing influenced contemporary photography, and continues to do so.... Printing is excellent. The slight spot varnish on the photographs and the minimalist layout reinforce the Polaroid sensation.--Krista Prestek "Emotion Daily" Guy Bourdin's photographs are a study in the perverse contradictions that make modern fashion so appealing: threatening but intriguing, haunting but chic. They're disturbing, but you're buying what he's selling.--Rachel Tashjian "Vanity Fair" Paved the way for a new type of fashion photography.--Stephanie Eckardt "New York Magazine" The color photos are lushly saturated in the way that only this type of film offers, while the black & whites are gauzy, almost ghostly. And they're all reproduced at actual size as if the snapshots are sitting on the page. It's a powerful collection from one of Polaroid's true masters.--Krista Prestek "GQ"
