Wow I actually like his work more than that of the legendary Newton.

anouk aimée par Bourdin
a french actress, I don't know if she is famous in other country.
Sorry if I write in french, but I'm not able to think in english (Pour les francophones donc, voici une image inhabituelle dans la production de Bourdin, où les images en noir et blanc semblent être peu nombreuses (je dis semblent, parce qu'on ne possède pas encore un catalogue complet d'une oeuvre qui est sans doute l'une des plus importante de son temps) et une image qui est pour moi une des plus érotiques qui soit : cette blancheur du visage et du cou affronté à la dentelle, ce genou exhibé qui appelle la main comme le genou de Claire chez Rohmer, cette jupe froissée que l'on a envie de relever... Bref, cette image me paraissait aussi érotique que lorsque je la vis la première fois, il y a vingt ans, aussi érotique que l'apparition d'Anouk en guépiere dans Lola de Jacques Demy... Quant aux photos en couleurs de Bourdin, ce n'est pas l'érotisme qui me paraît être important, mais simplement cette science de la couleur et de la lumière qui éclate lorsque l'on voit des grands formats (l'exposition au Jeu de Paume était, à cet égard, révélatrice), cette faculté de raconter une histoire et de pousser le spectateur à s'interroger sur l'avant et sur l'après de la photographie. Et c'est là aussi une chose que l'on retrouve dans la photo d'Anouk Aimée : la jupe a DEJA été froissée, la veste est déjà déboutonnée, comme dans le Verrou de Fragonard le lit où les deux amants vont s'ébattre est déjà froissé, bouleversé.)
J'arrête là mon délire, d'autres images de Bourdin bientôt.

I love Guy Bourdin! He's my favourite photographer.
I saw his exhibition at the V&A in London which was amazing,and did a project on him for my French. My favourite part of the exhibition was the short film of a girl swivelling on a chair, and the notes and ideas he'd scribbled in his notebook, in French and English, which were hung up.

His work is terrifically beautiful and macabre.

I suppose sources mean books?
For Bourdin, the scan of Anouck Aimée come from the first number of FMR in french (the franco maria ricci revue), all the others are scanned in the book published in 2004 for the exposition Guy Bourdin at the Jeu de Paume (paris). For Blumenfeld, beaton, Maywald and Clarke, it's more difficult because I don't have anymore all the books (I take them in public librairy or I give them to my friends).
Blumenfeld : a little book published by fnac galeries (1984), Blumenfeld, le culte de la beauté (1996) and an other book I can't remember now.
Beaton : cecil beaton published by le chêne (1984) and two others books
Maywald : Willy Maywald by Elisabeth Pineau (2003) and an other book
Clarke : henry clarke, l'élégance des années cinquante (Herscher, Paris, 1986)
I will try to find the others titles for the holidays.
Fred
PS. last but not least, four others of my scans of Guy Bourdin

Anna, I'm sorry , my girlfriend went to the public librairy this afternoon, but she can't have all the books I scanned. And I will not have the time next week to search them. Even for Bourdin, I remember now I use an other book for some photos because they were better but unfortunatly I don't remember the title.
I think I will have the time to find all the books next summer. My next post will be send in august 2006

Maybe the best fashion photographer but I would hesitate before calling him the best photographer in all contexts.

Guy Bourdin creates mise-en-scenes of personal surrealism and intimidation with ironic nods to sex, power, and the fashion world itself. Helmut Newton took aesthetic cues from and I would compare some of his gloss with Jeanloup Sieff.

However, his alienation asthetic has a correlation, I feel, with Ralp Eugene Meatyard, one of the best realist photographers along the lines of Diane Arbus, Gary Winogrand, et al.
