Peter Lindbergh. Shadows on the Wall

Peter Lindbergh is wary of society's fixation on extravagantly retouched women. Shadows on the Wall offers a stunning curation of truly individual, intimate images, with hardly any retouching or makeup.

A master of his craft, Peter Lindbergh has made his mark in the history of photography. For example, he shot the first cover of American Vogue under editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, he brought together for the first time a group of young women who would become the supermodels of the 1990s, and he had numerous solo exhibitions in world-renowned museums.

The industry soon became enamored with his almost anti-fashion photography, capturing the zeitgeist and spirit of his subjects rather than pursuing the contemporary quest for perfection, which he considers inhuman.

Lindbergh took an intimate look at a pool of extraordinary talent from 37,000 unreleased photos from his groundbreaking 2017 Pirelli calendar coverage: Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Charlotte Rampling, Dame Helen Mirren, Jessica Chastain, Kate Winslet, Léa Seydoux, Lupita Nyong'o, Penélope Cruz, Robin Wright, Rooney Mara, Uma Thurman and Zhang Ziyi.

His message is simple. These intimate images represent a different kind of beauty, far from society's obsession with youth and perfection; one that deals with individuality, the courage to be yourself and your own sensitivity.
