Published to accompany Somerset House's major exhibition Guy Bourdin: Image Maker, 27 November - 15 March 2016

Guy Bourdin: Britain by Cadillac charts Guy Bourdin’s seminal road trip of Britain in 1979 to take photographs for a Charles Jourdan advertising campaign. Bourdin dispensed with the use of a model and employed instead a pair of mannequin legs, cut off just below the knee. She is only a hint of a woman, and yet in each situation in which Bourdin placed her she becomes a complete character within a story, told around many iconic British landmarks such as a Brighton seafront, an English rose garden, a taxi rank, and Battersea Power Station. Featuring 25 photographs, most of which have never been published before, as well as film stills from the trip and original Polaroids, the book also contains an introductory essay by Alistair O’Neill, and contributions from Philippe Garner, Mike Figgis, William Ewing, Tim Walker, Shelly Verthime and many more distinguished commentators.
