Horst P. Horst

Horst is another fashion photographer that worked specifically with black and white photography. He is best known for one of the great iconic photographs of the twentieth century 'The mainbocher corset', with its erotically charged mystery. Horst's work frequently reflects his interest in surrealism and his idea of the Greek ideal of physical beauty.  

I really like how in a lot of his photographs he only shoots half the body or part of the body, it creates a mystery and the opportunity for the viewer to use there imagination. I love this idea of creating photographs that create mystery and capture surrealism. This arrangement to use only parts of the body may be relevant within my work when thinking about concept and camera positioning.
