Known as Horst P. Horst. In the history of twentieth-century
fashion and portrait photography, Horst's contribution figures as one of the most artistically significant and long lasting,
spanning as it did the sixty years between 1931 and 1991. During this period, his name became legendary as a one-word photographic
byline, and his photographs came to be seen as synonymous with the creation of images of elegance, style and rarefied glamour.
Born on 14 August 1906, Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann was the second son of a prosperous middle class Protestant shop owner,
Max Bohrmann and his wife, Klara Schoenbrodt.The first pictures that carried a Horst credit line appeared in the December
1931 issue of French Vogue. It was a full-page advertisement showing a model
in black velvet holding a Klytia scent bottle in one hand with the other hand raised elegantly above it... Horst's real breakthrough
as a published fashion and portrait photographer was in the pages of British Vogue...
starting with the 30 March 1932.
