Guy Bourdin: “Whenever I’m art directing fashion photo shoots, I often reference Guy Bourdin. I really appreciate his graphic images and simple compositions, as well as his habit of always shooting with a narrative in mind. I like to approach photo shoots with a story or narrative, even if it’s only subtly implied. A strong feeling—whether it’s sensual, provocative, shocking, exotic, surrealistic, or even sinister—makes whatever image you associate with a fashion item that much more compelling.”
