Guy Bourdin’s career spanned more than forty years during which time he worked for the world’s leading fashion houses and magazines. From his early editorial fashion commissions, Guy immediately revealed his distinct style. His photographs went beyond fashion and can be considered some of the most iconic images of our time.


His pioneering techniques and skilful use of plot and perspective, meticulous compositions, hyper-colour, and contrast mean his works are instantly recognisable and timeless. This exciting project marks the first time Bourdin’s work has been presented in the Middle East.

The selection of images includes some of the artist’s most recognisable images. Shot between 1970-1979, the collection showcases his bold aesthetic, fusing art, fashion, and culture.


“It has been a dream of mine to bring this sumptuous exhibition to the Middle East. There is no better place than THAT to showcase the artworks of the iconic Guy Bourdin – the photographer who was responsible for elevating fashion photography to an art form. This curated and framed collection is going to transform the home of collectors in Dubai and beyond,” says Viola Raikhel, Curator, and co-founder,
