Originally commissioned for an advertising campaign, this picture was inspired by the famous
Mainbocher Corset photographed by 20th century master photographer Horst P Horst whose original
photograph is currently on show at the V&A as part of an excellent retrospective of his work. 
Also included in the exhibition are many of his 90+ covers for Vogue...!

I was pleased to receive an AOP Silver Award for my picture when it was first published,
and more recently it has been published again in A&R+20 magazine - celebrating 20 years of my
talented agents A&R Photographic

Photography copyright Wendy Carrig with sincere thanks to Horst.

    It’s a beautiful image Wendy and a great homage to Horst. It cleverly takes us back in time but also maintaining originality.

    I hope you don’t mind me saying that this is a truly fantastic photo. I very much like the way you have absolutely nailed the spirit of the Horst original whilst still creating an original photograph. Well worth recycling that photo regularly. Oh, and the Horst exhibition is great but very crowded. The catalogue is expensive but very worthwhile. Taken together with a book of Hurrell photos there is enough collective inspiration to last a photographer for years.
