On the hunt for photography inspiration, I came upon the work of Horst P. Horst. I'd seen his images before, and if you open up any issue of Vogue you can see his legacy clearly influencing the artists of today. I was particularly drawn to his lingerie photographs, as well as the beautiful photo of Salvador Dali's costumes for Leonid Massine's ballet Bacchanale. I think another post will have to be made for those costumes--I love when artists design costumes or props and backdrops for the stage. It's like stepping into their worlds. But anyways, the work of Horst P. Horst stands out to me because it is both elegant and strange. I like the way he obscures and shadows his subjects. He presents fashion as surreal and exciting. Very very cool.
