Horst: Photographs– Fashion and Surrealism exhibition organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
In an extraordinary sixty-year career, Horst’s photographs graced the pages of Vogue and House and Garden. He became renowned as a master of expressive lighting and atmospheric illusion. In the early 1930s Horst moved to Paris – the heart of the creative avant-garde – and befriended designers and artists like Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dalí. Horst’s career spanned the opulence of Parisian pre-war haute couture and the rise of ready-to-wear fashions in Post-war America. Not confined to fashion, Horst excelled at portraiture, nude studies, interiors and still life photography, drawing from a wide range of sources from ancient Greek and Roman sculpture to surrealist discourse.
Inspired by Horst’s stunning portraiture, we created a concept leveraging how he captured the human form.
