“Fashion photographers are the new painters” - Peter Lindbergh
Peter Lindbergh’s image of five young models, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington in downtown NY made the cover of the British Vogue in 1990 and it started a new trend in fashion photography and created a new understanding of female beauty. His black and white film images are raw and alluring. They show character, tell stories but are romantic at the same time. This triggered new ideas for the fashion and art world. After the high-gloss and make-up overkill era of the 1980s, - the back then fairly unknown Lindbergh chose a simple and natural “back to the roots” style with his images. And at first, he was turned down by magazines. But he was very persistent and eventually the new Zeitgeist and potential of this style was realized and created his breakthrough in 1990.
Marco likes this book because it is a collection of 40 years of Lindbergh’s work and it shows the influence that he has had on the fashion industry.
His grainy B&W images leave a lot of room for the character, the natural beauty and the soul of the model and turned the fashion that was advertised into a by-product or accessory in the background. According to Marco, this book should belong in any photo book collection.
