Horst P. Horst  (American/German, 1906-1999) 

whitespace
Horst P. Horst (américano-allemand, né le 14 août 1906 à Weißenfels – décédé le 19 novembre 1999 à Palm Beach Gardens) gagne une certaine notoriété grâce à ses photographies de mode publiées dans le Vogue britannique au début des années1 930, après sa rencontre avec le photographe Cecil Beaton (britannique, 1904-1980). L’élégance avec laquelle Horst capture ses sujets fait de lui une personne influente parmi une génération de photographes, dont Bruce Weber (américain, né en 1946).

Photographe pour Coco Chanel pendant plus de 30 ans, Horst est fortement soutenu par les membres du monde de la mode, notamment l’importante rédactrice de mode Diana Vreeland. En parallèle à ses portraits et clichés de mode, Horst photographie des paysages, des architectures d’intérieur et des natures mortes tout au long de sa carrière. Adopté par le monde de la mode, Horst commence à exposer son travail dans de grandes galeries d’art dès 1932 et ce, jusqu’à la fin de sa carrière. En 1989, Horst reçoit le Lifetime Achievement Award of The Council of Fashion Designers of America et en 1996 le Master of Photography Award du Centre International de la Photographie à New York. Ses œuvres ont été exposées au Fortuny Palace de Venise (1989), au Louvre de Paris (1991), au Museum Ludwig Cologne (1992), à la National Portrait Gallery (2001) et au Victoria and Albert Museum de Londres (2007).

  When Horst P Horst began to photograph for Vogue in 1932, fashion photography was still largely in thrall to the style introduced by Steichen in the 1920's and subsequently refined by Hoyningen-Huene. Horst, who had originally come to Paris to study architecture with Le Corbusier, turned instead to photography after making the aquaintance of Hoyningen-Huene, and his own earliest work echoes Hoyningen-Huene's cool classicism. Models were photographed with meticulous precision under artificial lights; studio sets were austere; backgrounds were plain or severly geometric.

Within a few years, however, Horst developed a more frankly oranamental style that was unmistakably his own. His combination of extravagant visual fantasy and vibrant sensuality sets his fashion photography quite apart from those of Vogue's two other principal photographers of the 1930's, Steichen and Cecil Beaton. Gradually introducing more imaginatively furnished sets and drapery, Horst arranged his tableaux with an eye for elegant undulating lines and sophisticated lighting effects. Amid rich surroundings, his model's face might be thrown unexpectedly into silhouette, giving rise to a mood of calculated mystery and anticipation.

In addition to his fashion photographs, Horst produced during the 1930's a series of highly regarded portraits of the leading personalities of the day, including Dietrich, Dali, Cocteau, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Often done outside the studio, these portraits lack the formal perfection of Horst's fashion work, but effectively transmit the air of sometimes desperate gaiety that marked the period between the wars. Although he remains active, and has published highly successful interior studies and patterned abstractions from natural forms, Horst continues to be irrevocably linked with the sensibility of the 1930's.
