UNTOUCHED BY GUY BOURDIN OPENING

From the long work of the curator Shelly Verthime,
comes now the “Untouched” exhibition by Guy Bourdin.

A yellow Kodak Box. A treasure found in the archive, filled with a series of brown paper envelopes
each containing a negative and a corresponding contact print taped to the outside, often with cropping guides.
Untouched for over fifty years, these were rare, intimate, personal, and authentic reflections
of Guy Bourdin’s broad visual interests before he started his commercial career as a photographer.

THE UNTOUCHED BY GUY BOURDIN BOOK PRESENTATION

It took more than ten years the quest of Shelly Verthime
to bring the untouched pictures by Guy Bourdin to a book and to an exhibition,
shown for the first time at the Fondazione Sozzani.

Thanks to the intuitions, the coincidences,
and the love for Bourdin’s work of Shelly Verthime, the Curator of the Estate Guy Bourdin,
and Alistair O’Neill, curator and lecturer at the Saint Martins’ College,
who, with his fluent and accomplished talking led the audience throughout the years
and the career of Guy Bourdin.
