Guy Bourdin – Polaroids
Xavier Barral's beautifully-produced, silver clothbound collection of the late French photographer Guy Bourdin's gritty yet glamorous Polaroids is a book for the dark side of every fashion photographer's bookshelf.
Erotic, mysterious, surreal, and so perfectly Paris-in-the-70s, these photographs capture fantasies and fetishes that only grow more powerful over time. "One is always marvelously surprised when one has the chance to look at a photograph by Guy Bourdin," photographer Oliviero Toscani writes. "Each of his images is a well of meaning and emotions; when regarding his photographs one has the particular sensation of entering a world that is fantastic, human, dreamlike, eccentric, absurd, metaphysical and based in a unique sensibility."
