Over 30 years spent building a reputation as a leading fashion photographer, Bruno Bisang has been trusted with the image of some of the most beautiful women in the world.

Monica Bellucci, Carla Bruni, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer - to name just four - have appeared on the front cover of international magazines after gazing into his lens.

But the subject of Bruno Bisang: 30 Years Of Polaroids - the new show opening at London's Little Black Gallery this month - is not the glossy fashion shoots that made his name but the random snaps he took with a modest instant camera along the way.

The result is a vivid evocation of the unique bond that exists between famous models and their most trusted photographers.

Looking relaxed - not to mention, in many cases, naked - some of Bisang's models were so pleased with their Polaroid portrait they signed them for him.

Even in a technical sense, the composition and colour of the photos seem to transcend the tool that made them, making this show a tribute Bisang's artistry as well as a documentation of a remarkable career.
