marina faust - the archive box - 1990-2009-2017-4

Each Archive Box contains a unique choice of 10 images of Marina Faust‘s
nearly 20-years collaboration with Martin Margiela.
The images are re-appropriations of her photo-series done on assignment between 1990 and 2008.
She looks at her material again today with a fresh and new point of view.
The sources are photo prints, negatives, contact sheets, Polaroids, photocopies and digital material.
Marina Faust was the only photographer having worked with Martin Margiela
throughout his whole career, which, besides other considerations,
makes her archive unique.

 From October 26th, 2017
at Galleria Carla Sozzani Bookshop.

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.

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.
