London : Guy Bourdin


To coincide with the UK’s largest ever exhibition of the photographer Guy Bourdin at Somerset House, the Michael Hoppen Gallery delights to exhibiti a rare selection from “Walking Legs” series. Officially being unveiled alongside Somerset House’s show ‘Image-Maker’, ‘Walking Legs’, is one of Bourdin’s most loved Charles Jourdan campaign series. “Walking Legs” was shot in 1979 by the French designer and photographer,he used quintessentially English landscapes as the backdrop to this high-end campaign. Photographed at locations on a road trip taken in a Cadillac from London to Brighton, many of the city and seaside scenes remain the same today and include familiar sights such as the London bus stop and the classic park bench.  As with much of Bourdin’s work, the model is mysteriously absent – all that is seen is a pair of mannequin legs, adorned with Charles Jourdan’s creations.
