Horst P. Horst is one of the artists who has contributed to the development of fashion photography. However, despite having worked all his life for Vogue, he never reached the fame of Avedon or Penn. As a result of a thorough and profound study on Greek sculpture, his work was filled with eternally elegant silhouettes. He died in 1999, at the age of 93, having inspired people like Maddona or Donna Karan.


Horst P. Horst es probablemente uno de los artistas que más ha contribuido al perfeccionamiento de la fotografía de moda. Sin embargo, y a pesar de haber trabajado toda su vida para Vogue, nunca llegó a alcanzar la fama de Avedon o Penn. Como resultado de un profundo estudio de la escultura griega, su trabajo está plagado de siluetas eternamente elegantes. Murió en 1999, a los 93 años de edad, habiendo inspirado a gente tan dispar como Madonna o Donna Karan.
