Horst P. Horst (featuring Tim Walker)

Horst P. Horst is another photographer whose work I've seen before but was only given a name when I read the Vogue book. His picture of the girl with the white corset on a bench is genuinely one of my all-time favourite photographs. It just evokes feelings I can't even explain.

However I came across the photo second from the bottom (by Horst) and it immediately reminded me of another photo by Tim Walker (bottom). Just the wall to the right, the monochrome, the two silhouettes, the gauzy clothes, make them very similar (I'm not accusing Tim Walker of copying Horst or anything, it's just funny how two photographers from different centuries can produce such similar photos!).
