Guy Bourdin in Galleria Carla Sozzani
At the same address as in the former post at Corso Como 10 I found two lovely exhibitions called "A message for You" and "Unseen" from a photographer Guy Bourdin.
Bourdin has been considered as one of the most provocative and daring artists in the 20th century's visual culture. He expressed his visions and imaginations with metaphors and created fascinated images in terms of storytelling, colors and compositions. Bourdin explored passionately the meaning of desire as the authentic voice of one's inner self, the search of beauty, life, death and sexuality as primary universal issues in everyone's own existence. Finally after almost eighteen years after his death his legancy is being prased by major international museums. Thereby he continues to inspire generations of photographers through his work.
