Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford in Giorgio di Sant’Angelo by Peter Lindbergh for British Vogue January 1990

“After all, Lindbergh loves women. Most famously, his eye is responsible for defining the era of the supermodel.”

 

Excerpt from an interview with Peter Lindbergh.

“His pictures, often rendered in black and white with their industrial guts (cameras, lights, cords) showing, exhibit a deconstructed kind of beauty. “I show elements of the set in my pictures because it’s not real,” Lindbergh explains. “When I see movies, I often love the ‘making of’ more than the movie itself. It’s not so final. When you have a woman just standing there, it doesn’t mean much.”

Lindbergh’s success is due to one thing: His pictures mean a lot. He originally studied art in Berlin, beginning his photography career almost by accident. “Someone I knew needed an assistant. But I could have easily been a baker or worked in a flower shop.” In 1973, he started shooting monochromatic advertising campaigns. (“Black and white, you see under the skin, no?”)”
