Exhibition: Horst: Photographer of Style
Place: Victoria & Albert Museum, London
Dates: 6 September 2014 – 4 January 2015
Description: “Horst P. Horst (1906-99) created images that transcend fashion and time. He was a master of light, composition and atmospheric illusion, who conjured a world of sensual sophistication. In an extraordinary sixty-year career, his photographs graced the pages of Vogue and House and Garden under the one-word photographic byline ‘Horst’. He ranks alongside Irving Penn and Richard Avedon as one of the pre-eminent fashion and portrait photographers of the 20th century.”
The exhibition website is enhanced with supplemental information, including timelines, a fashion photography Pinterest board, and videos such as the one below about the V&A archival preparations for the show.
