HAUTE SHOTS: For the last seven years, German photographer Cathleen Naundorf has been making haunting large-format Polaroids of couture dresses in fantastical settings. Some 100 of these images are published in the coffee table book “Haute Couture, The Polaroids of Cathleen Naundorf,” due to be released by Prestel Publishing on May 15 in Europe and June 15 in the U.S.

A disciple of legendary photographer Horst P. Horst, Naundorf worked closely with Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Lacroix, Elie Saab, Valentino and Christian Dior to create the images, using increasingly rare 4-by-5-inch or 8-by-10-inch Polaroid films. A selection of the photographs will be shown at the Bernheimer Fine Art Photography gallery in Munich from June 20 to late July.
