Madonna sued by son of ‘French vogue’ photographer


General Photography

“Madonna is being sued by the son of a French fashion photographer [Guy Bourdin] who has accused her of imitating images created by his father.” (story) If you want to judge for yourself, check out this comparison of stills from Madonna’s video and of photos by Guy Bourdin. The similarities are quite obvious; in particular since the poses of the models in Bourdin’s photos are not your everyday poses. Needless to say, this lawsuit is particularly spicy in the light of Madonna’s attacks on people who copy here music illegally. Nothing but some good old hypocrisy, eh?
