HORST P. HORST

Posted on November 5, 2013 by Isabella Cecconi

We have an entire year to get ready for the retrospective of the work of magnificent master photographer Horst P. Horst. German American, he spanned his career for six decades, photographing  the exquisite creations of couturiers such as Chanel, Schiaparelli and Vionnet.  He launched many models and  experimented with early colour techniques. His pictures are meticulously composed, lit by  great art and keenness. The exhibition will display Horst’s best known photographs alongside unpublished and rarely exhibited vintage prints. From surreal to still lives, from portraits of Hollywood stars to nudes and nature studies.  A creative process through archive film footage, original contact sheets, sketchbooks and letters.
