quote [Guy Bourdin (1928-1991) was a French avant-garde fashion photographer. Mentored by surrealist Man Ray and inspired by filmmaker Luis Buñuel, Bourdin's fashion shoots were often very strange, sexual, phantasmagoric and occasionally quite creepy. His photography frequently appeared in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar and he shot ad campaigns for Charles Jourdan, Issey Miyake, Chanel, and others. Bourdin was also quietly a filmmaker, working with 8mm, super 8, and 16mm. Above is footage of Dayle Haydon and Sayuko during a 1974 Vogue shoot in Normandy, France. More footage here on YouTube and here on UBUWEB Film. There's also a recent documentary, titled When the Sky Fell Down: The Myth of Guy Bourdin. And in July, Phaidon will publish a small inexpensive hardcover book of his work].

Playful, sensual and elegant are some of the words that describe Serge Leblon's photographs. His images are anything but harsh, opening up an evocative world of fantasy and desire. In fact, the Belgian's romanticism is somewhat at odds with the aggressive sexiness found in mainstream fashion imagery. Even though he has a spark in his eyes, Leblon comes across as a discreet and humble man.

Salgado interview in The New York Times Magazine from 1991…Enlightening…

“The trouble with color film, Salgado says, is that “it is too much real. It doesn’t allow you to have a single degree of imagination.” Besides, he adds, when he used color, “I was very preoccupied with color. It was a huge distraction.”"

Interviews Sebastiao Salgado : The Eye of The Photojournalist (NYT Mag: 1991)

Salgado interview from 2008 in Der Tagesspiegel… for people who understand German… I don’t.

“Q: Sie sind bekannt dafür, dass Sie ausschließlich mit Schwarzweißfilmen arbeiten…

Salgado: …soll ich Ihnen was verraten? Ich habe angefangen, digital zu fotografieren.”

Does Salgado say there, he shoots digital now? O’Lord Almighty!
