The German-born artist delved into the worlds of fashion, design and theatre throughout a 60-year career based primarily in Paris and New York.
This September, Horst: Photographer of Style is set to explore the photographer’s collaborations and relationships with the likes of Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Marlene Dietrich and Salvador Dali.
Some 250 photographs will be displayed, alongside film footage, magazines and haute couture garments. More than 90 vogue covers by Horst will be exhibited, as will some previously unpublished vintage prints.
Stunning travel photographs from Israel, Iran, Syria, Italy and Morocco will be among the lesser-known elements of Horst's work revealed by the exhibition. His 1950s nude studies and explorations of natural forms will also feature.
"Horst was one of the greatest photographers of fashion and society," said Martin Roth, director of the V&A. "This exhibition will shine a light on all aspects of his long and distinguished career.
"Horst's legacy and influence, which has been seen in work by artists, designers and performers including Herb Ritts, Robert Mapplethorpe, Bruce Weber and Madonna, continues today."
Horst: Photographer of Style runs from 6 September 2014 - 4 January 2015 at the V&A. See the website for more information.
