South London’s independent publisher Jane&Jeremy and The Guy Bourdin Estate collaborated to publish ‘Nature Magique’, a limited edition handmade book with only 100 copies.
The book explores the theme of nature in Bourdin’s work which seems to have had an underlying influence. With 33 images and a print stamped and numbered by The Guy Bourdin Estate.
With surrealism, sharp humor and a deeply radical approach Guy Bourdin changed the scene of photography. His work, whether in editorial or advertising broke aesthetic conventions, always characterized by a dramatic intensity and relentless perfectionism.
Generations of photographers and visual artists such as Sarah Moon and Märta Thisner to Inez & Vinoodh, regard Bourdin as an inspiration. His influence has transcended time and the flow of fashion, putting his work on the spotlight within the context of contemporary art.
