Notable Photographers : Horst P. Horst
 

We want to pay homage to legendary photographer, Horst P. Horst, who worked during a time period when the word "digital" was a mere idea and not a choice or option. Horst is credited with transforming fashion photography from still life images to glamorous spreads that have been renowned for decades.

Horst's career began in 1931 when an advertisement he shot ran in French Vogue. Over the course of sixty years, Horst made important contributions at Conde Nast, creating elegant spreads for French, British and American Vogue. He also photographed celebrities such as Bette Davis, Coco Chanel, and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to name a few.

Horst is known as one of the first fashion photographers to use lighting as a method for creating mystery, sophistication and luxury. A visionary ahead of his time, Horst's most notable photographs feature a subject under a single spotlight, creating a focal point accentuated by shadows.
