This film reveals the process of creating new colour prints for the exhibition Horst: Photographer of Style. Horst was quick to master new colour processes, introduced in the late 1930s, and he created hundreds of vibrant fashion photographs for Vogue.
The V&A team worked closely with specialists at the Condé Nast Archive and expert printer Ken Allen to select and print from Horst's early transparencies, which date from the 1930s to the 1950s. The film includes insights into Horst's dynamic approach from model Carmen Dell'Orefice and Vogue's International Editor at Large, Hamish Bowles.
The exhibition Horst: Photographer of Style opens at the V&A 6 September 2014 - 4 January 2015
Instagram is an incredible resource for all kinds of images. I wanted to create structure out of this chaos. The result is a crowd source short-film that shows the endless possibilities of social media.
The video consists of 852 different pictures, from 852 different instagram users. If you are one of them, shout and I will add you to the credits.
