“Guy Bourdin was one of the photographers who defined the decade of the 70’s, yet few of us are aware that his long and prolific career began many years earlier.  Bourdin’s oeuvre is intimately associated with the magazine page.  In very few cases were his pictures published or exhibited outside of the transient medium.  And so it was that in the pages of Vogue Paris, and in the revolutionary advertising campaigns for Charles Jourdan, he found the freedom to explore and refine his vision over an extended period of time”. —-Samuel Bourdin (Son of Guy Bourdin)
