J'ADORE GUY BOURDIN!
The late Guy Bourdin was a French photographer best known for his work for French Vogue from the mid-fifties through the eighties. Always graphically strong with a weird sense of alienation, his photographs conveyed a surrealism not commonly found today...
(Unless you watch the Madonna Hollywood video where she proceeds to rip off an entire series of Bourdin photographs and recreates the scenes using herself as the subject. Maybe some of these photos will remind you of the video which motivated Bourdin's son to sue her Madgesty.)
