vis-à-vis: Guy Bourdin and Honer Akrawi

Guy Bourdin, Vogue Paris 1969                                               Honer Akrawi for Grazia France, 2014

Guy Bourdin was inspired by surrealism and rejected the traditional codes of photography in favor of atmospheric editorials where the product advertised was often put in the background. He started to shoot for Vogue Paris in the late 50s and his work remains highly influential today. For the March 2014 edition of French Grazia Honer Akrawi  similarly creates a refined atmosphere turning model Sophie Droogendijk ‘s face into a canvas where the jewelry advertised disappears, blending in with the glitter.
