Follow Peter Lindbergh (1944-2019) through four decades of pioneering fashion photography. Through countless collaborations with the most revered names in fashion, the German photographer created new stories with his humanistic approach, resulting in iconic shots that are at once introspective and appealing.
This Peter Lindbergh book contains more than 300 images, many previously unpublished, and an updated introduction in which Lindbergh lays out his views on "so-called fashion photography."
Peter Lindbergh's respect for some of the greatest designers of our time is palpable in his portraits. Among those photographed are Azzedine Alaïa, Giorgio Armani, Alber Elbaz, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, Thierry Mugler, Yves Saint Laurent, Jil Sander and Yohji Yamamoto.
Lindbergh is widely considered a pioneer in his field. He eschewed the beauty standards of industry and instead celebrated the essence and individuality of his subjects. He played a central role in the emergence of such models as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Mariacarla Boscono, Lara Stone, Claudia Schiffer, Amber Valletta, Nadja Auermann and Kristen McMenamy.
Lindbergh's reach also extended across Hollywood and beyond: Cate Blanchett, Charlotte Rampling, Richard Gere, Isabelle Huppert, Nicole Kidman, Madonna, Brad Pitt, Catherine Deneuve and Jeanne Moreau all appear in his work. From the photograph Anna Wintour chose as the cover for her first Vogue issue to the legendary shot of Tina Turner on the Eiffel Tower, it is never the clothes, celebrity or glamour that takes center stage in a photograph by Lindbergh. Each photograph conveys the humanity of its subject with a serene melancholy that is uniquely and unmistakably Lindbergh.
