Horst P. Horst for Dali

Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann (August 14, 1906 – November 18, 1999) who chose to be known as Horst P. Horst was a German-American fashion photographer. Horst is best known for his photographs of women and fashion and his work frequently reflects his interest in surrealism and his regard of the ancient Greek ideal of physical beauty. This costume for Salvador Dalí’s Dream of Venus (Lobster #1) was shot by Horst in 1939.
