  • Catalogue Essay

    "Horst was in my opinion one of the great photographers of his time. He was a perfectionist in every sense of the word. There is nothing accidental in his work - every line, every shadow, every movement enhances what he finds in front of his camera, and the results, speak handsomely for the success of his approach. His ethos of simplicity and the way in which he constructed his images - as a form of photographic sculpture - has always been an inspiration to me. But most of all, everything about Horst resonates with true style, and that, to my mind, is irresistible." - Tom Ford, fashion designer
