Guy Bourdin



I'll admit it. The first time I heard Guy Bourdin's name was when someone said Madonna copied his style for her "Hollywood" video. I love that video.
Then I saw his photographs & saw the similarities. He's the OG, a fashion photographer who also made short films. He was born in the twenties and died in the nineties. I can't get enough of his style. These photos are all from his site www.guybourdin.org/gallery

To see how Madonna was inspired by his style... watch the vid, then search his name on youtube for Bourdin's short films. I also see similarities to David Lynch... anyway, I've been looking at fashion photography & his are among my favorites.

I see it, and I never knew that about Madonna! His style seems edgy, and I like it.
