Lot Essay

'The last time I had taken a photograph of a corset it was retouched before it was published because it was a bit too open on the side and they thought it was too suggestive. Here I said to hell with it. I wanted it open all the way; I thought it was more interesting to see the shape of it and to get a little action into it.' -- Horst
