_____________________________________
Horst P. Horst German-American, 1906–1999
(born Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann) was one of the towering figures of 20th-century fashion photography. Best known for his work with Vogue—who called him “photography’s alchemist”—Horst rose to prominence in Paris in the interwar years, publishing his first work with the magazine in 1931. In the decades that followed, Horst’s experimentations with radical composition, nudity, double exposures, and other avant-garde techniques would produce some of the most iconic fashion images ever, like Mainbocher Corset and Lisa with Harp (both 1939). As The New York Times once described, “Horst tamed the avant-garde to serve fashion.” Though associated most closely with fashion photography, Horst captured portraits of many of the 20th century’s brightest luminaries, dabbling with influences as far-ranging as Surrealism and Romanticism. “I like taking photographs because I like life,” he once said. “And I love photographing people best of all because most of all I love humanity.”

Artist Profile

Born: 1906

Hometown: Weißenfels

Based in: Deceased

Horst P. Horst is ranked alongside Irving Penn and Richard Avedon as one of the last century’s leading photographers. In an extraordinary sixty-year career, Horst’s photographs graced the pages of Vogue and House and Garden.

He was renowned as a master of expressive lighting and atmospheric illusion. In the early 1930s, Horst moved to Paris – the center of the creative avant-garde – and befriended designers and creative people like Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Salvador Dali.​

Horst’s career spanned the opulence of Parisian pre-war haute couture and the rise of ready-to-wear fashions in post-war America. Not confined to fashion, Horst excelled in portraiture, nude studies, interiors, and still life photography drawing from an extended range of sources from ancient Greek and Roman sculpture to surrealist discourse.

Horst was a classic black-and-white photographer who became a great color photographer, recording rooms as if you were actually inside them. The German-born lensman (who died in 1999) often positioned his camera from unusual vantage points, such as a homeowner’s favored armchair to conjure an atmosphere of uncommon intimacy.
