Peter Lindbergh ( 1944) is a German fashion photographer. After moving to Paris in 1978, he concentrated on high-fashion and photographed many top models including Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Stephanie Seymour, Isabella Rossellini, Nastassja Kinski and Tatjana Patitz as well as other projects with Karl Lagerfeld, Daryl Hannah, Giorgio Armani and more. His photographs have been published by Stern, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue magazines.
He is considered to be one of the world’s preeminent fashion photographers, particularly in black and white, and is
credited with helping create the supermodel phenomenon of the 1990s]. He prefers his model to have minimal make-up and a simple hairstyle.
What’s so striking about black and white photography is how it really helps a sense of reality to come through.“ – Peter Lindbergh
