Horst P. Horst revolutionized the Fashion industry through his photography. The pretentiousness I find in many fashion photographers today, I realize derive from echoed emulations of the legend in which Horst P. Horst left behind. Simultaneously elevating brand and fashion, in unity through his Photography. His stark, risky (at the time), elegant approach to lighting and contrast, portrayed his his subjects in the semblance of Greek sculptures. This gave way to the surrealism of today’s fashion photography… and paved the way for the tastemakers of today.
His work was incredible… and is still as amazing, engaging, and inspiring to look at to this day.
I deeply appreciate his eye, his talent, and his taste for the human form as an artist.
Here’s to Horst.
