Peter Lindbergh. On Fashion Photography - 40th Anniversary Edition
The photographer who altered the landscape of fashion photography. It was on a Malibu beach in 1988 that Peter Lindbergh shot the White Shirts series, images now known the world over. This marked the beginning of an era that redefined beauty, and Lindbergh would go on to alter the landscape of fashion photography for the decades that followed.
This edition gathers more than 300 images from forty years of Lindbergh’s career. It traces the German photographer’s cinematic inflections and humanist approach, which produced images at once seductive and introspective. Featuring an updated introduction adapted from an interview in 2016, allowing a glimpse behind Lindbergh’s lens, where the photographer recounts his early collaborations, the tenuous relationship between commercial and fine art, and the power of storytelling.
