Guy Bourdin is acknowledged to have revolutionised 20th-century fashion photography through the playful but rigorously formalist, frequently surreal, and sometimes even rather haunting work he did in French Vogue from 1955 to 1987, as well as through ad campaigns he did for Christian Dior, Bloomingdales and Charles Jourdan. He influenced a generation of his peers and left an indelible mark on visual culture. But, in this small new monograph, Alison Gingeras also makes the case that he was "a courageous single artist, as opposed to a mere commercial photographer". Shown left is Chapeaux-Choc (Hat Shocker), from Vogue Paris, 1955 – hat by Claude Saint-Cyr.

The Canary Wharf & Square Mile Corporate Challenge is hotting up – and if you want to make a few quid from the squash tournament that pits the staff of City firms against each other, put your cash on Ernst & Young. Already in the semis, it will take on PricewaterhouseCoopers for a place in the final against Credit Suisse or the Financial Services Authority. How can we be so confident? Well, E&Y is represented by an employee, a certain Peter Marshall. His work at the firm is his second career – he was previously a professional squash player. A former world number two, in fact. So unless E&Y's rivals had the foresight to hire a former world number one, they don't stand a chance.
