Down the Rabbit Hole

Erwin Blumenfeld and Guy Bourdin

German photographer Erwin Blumenfeld’s Dada background is evident in his collage-like images and photographic manipulations. Blumenfeld’s Nude in Stockings, 1945 can be viewed as a precursor to the work of French photographer Guy Bourdin. Bourdin ‘s Spring 1979 campaign would become one of his most well-known images, typical of his work which featured disembodied legs wearing shoes by Charles Jourdan.
