Horst: Photographer of Style

The Victoria & Albert Museum dedicates an exhibition to German-American photographer Horst P. Horst (1906-99) whose celebrated images focused mainly on women and fashion but also included interior architecture, still lifes, the environment and high-society portraits.

Born in Germany, Horst Bohrmann moved to America in the early 1940s, becoming a US citizen in 1943 and changing his surname to Horst.

This exhibition examines the broad range of his ouevre throughout his 60-year career which saw him recognised as one of the most important fashion and portrait photographers of the 20th century.

In additon to his photographs on display is a large selection of his prints, drawings, notebooks, scrapbooks and letters.
