The consumption of Guy Bourdain

I first was exposed to Guy Bourdain‘s photographs on mass at the excellent exhibition of his work at London’s V & A museum in 2003. This was how they set him up for that exhibition:

At the heart of Guy Bourdin’s fashion photographs is a confrontation with the very nature of commercial image making. While conventional fashion images make beauty and clothing their central elements, Bourdin’s photographs offer a radical alternative.

Guy Bourdin presented fashion as the luxurious embellishment rather than the subject of his photographs. He magnified to centre stage dark fantasies, of lust, consumption and desire.
