Paris Photo 2018 – Grand Palais
November 8-11 2018
Representing the estate, Louise Alexander Gallery for its third participation to Paris Photo will present dedicated black and white artworks by french photographer Guy Bourdin.
Guy Bourdin is internationally renowned for his work in colour and his compositions. Much of his work also includes high-quality black and white works, from his personal projects dating from the late 1940s to 1955, as well as his work for Vogue and commercials throughout his career.
A group of works will be particularly highlighted, realised in 1987, for the presentation of the first watch by Chanel (“Premiere”). The campaign received the Infinity Award at the ICP (International Center for Photography in NY) in 1988. The price was presented by Annie Leibovitz to Bourdin in New York City.
Guy Bourdin (1928-1991) was born in Paris creating timeless images that contained fascinating stories, intense compositions and hyper real colours. Guy Bourdin captured the imagination of a whole generation and is considered to be one of the most daring and intriguing artists in the world of 20th century visual culture, his career spanning over three decades. Today, his work is exhibited in the most prestigious museums, such as The Getty, Tate, The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Jeu de Paume, The National Museum of China in Beijing and most recently the largest retrospective to date at Somerset House, London.
