Yesterday i learned that the great Peter Lindbergh has died on the 3rd of September. Maybe he was not the greatest of his generation, because Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Karl Lagerfeld became much more famous than Lindbergh ever would become, but among the Stern, Vogue and Vanity Fair readers he was known for his excellent, non polished photographs.
Setting a trend among photographers where the model had to be photographed as “natural” as possible. He will be remembered for these magnificent photographs which he took for 99% in black and white. www.ftn-books.com has some nice Lindbergh books in its inventory.
