Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann, who chose to be known as Horst P. Horst, was a German-American fashion photographer. He met Valentine Lawford, British diplomat in 1938 and they would live together as a couple until Lawford's death in 1991. Together they adopted and raised a son, Richard J. Horst. Horst is best known for his photographs of women and fashion, but is also recognized for his photographs of interior architecture, still lives, especially ones including plants, and environmental portraits. One of the great iconic photos of the 20th century is The Mainbocher Corset with its erotically charged mystery, captured by Horst in Vogue’s Paris studio in 1939. Designers like Donna Karan continue to use the timeless beauty of The Mainbocher Corset as an inspiration for their outerwear collections today. Valentine Lawford was also the author of Ralph Wigram’s biography, Bound for Diplomacy (Atlantic, Little, Brown; Boston; 1963). In the 1960s, encouraged by Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, Horst began a series of photos illustrating the lifestyle of international high society; articles were written by Valentine Lawford.
Together from 1938 to 1991: 53 years.
Horst P. Horst (August 14, 1906 - November 18, 1999)
Valentine Lawford (1911 – June, 1991)
