A Rare Super-8 Silent Film by Guy Bourdin

January 22, 2018

Guy Bourdin was a painter and legendary fashion photographer whose style has been pervasively appropriated in pop culture. Mentored by Man Ray, he avoided the limelight, focusing strictly on the creation of arresting pictures. Despite staging surreal mise en scènes for high-end brands like Vogue, fashion was the last thing on his mind. Sometimes, on the set of his shoots, Bourdin would bring out a super-8 cine camera, an example of which you can watch above.
