"A message for you"

‘A message for you’, this is the title of a two volume publication by Guy Bourdin, where a mannequins fétiche displays all the visionary genius of a fashion photographer. Aged thirty, after the military service where he learned how to manage with a camera, he had his first publishing with the French Vogue. Since that moment he officially started his career as a fashion photographer, but mostly in France he was already known to be the one man of different painting exhibitions for different galleries.

Haute couture and staged moments these are the ingredients to realize Mario Testino’s ideas on women.

The female feature empowered by her self, it’s seen in his pictures as a distant object, acting powerfully about life and deeply conscientious about his self.
