This new monograph invites readers into Horst P. Horst’s (1906–1999) world of elegance, luxury and fantasy. Including the photographer’s elegant nudes, fashion photography, celebrity portraits and still-life studies, this luxurious volume reveals the extraordinary breadth of Horst’s work in both color and black and white.
Before he adopted the name by which he is known, Horst Paul Albert Borhmann studied carpentry in his small German town, leaving in 1930 for Paris to study under architect Le Corbusier. He soon found himself in the orbit of Vogue photographer Baron George Hoyningen-Huene, for whom he worked as an assistant. Just one year later, Horst published his first photograph in French Vogue, a full-page advertisement for Klytia perfume.
Horst would be associated with Vogue magazine for the next six decades, changing the face of fashion photography with his impeccably posed and lighted images that transformed his models into versions of the classical sculptures and Surrealist art he so admired.
An international figure, traveling from Paris to New York and beyond, Horst chronicled and participated in the interwoven worlds of art, design, performance and glamorous high society.
