The V&A in London shows a major retrospective of the work of Horst P Horst, one of the masters of 20th-Century photography, starting in September. With a career that spans six decades, Horst photographed the work of designers Chanel, Schiaparelli and Vionnet.

This exhibition will display not only Horst’s best known images but also rarely exhibited, unpublished prints – from nudes, nature studies and documentary images of the Middle East to surreal still lives and portraits of Hollywood stars. The show will include a recreation of the 1940s studio of the photographer.
