Retrospective show of Horst P. Horst (1906-1999), involving 60 years of fashion, art, design and theater.
The selection, including rare vintage prints and personal notes, reflects his talent for photography and his amazing sense of style. It also places it in cultural and historical context.

The 60 years he spent photographing are very well displayed here, nice large range of his work and additional props, including his 8×10 camera and his for more portable Rolleiflex.
My personal favourite is the story of the famous corset photo, which is shown as 2 drawings in preparation, 2 photos, the original and the vogue edit (yes, they edited photos long before photoshop even existed) as well as a shot in a magazine.
