Dear Shaded Viewers,

I enjoyed speaking to the three main players in the exhibition, Shelly Verthime, Nicolle Meyer and Samuel Bourdin. The exhibition was set up to reflect Guy Bourdin's attraction to mirrors and reflections while two walls exhibited Guy's amazing photos featuring his beautiful muse, Nicolle Meyer and printed in a size similar to that of a magazine which is what most of the images were commissioned for. Knowing how photographers these days rely on photoshop, Guy Bourdin's images show his background as a painter, his sensitivity to color, the frame and his endless search for perfection. Another post will follow with some of the images.
