Ode to a Master

Peter Lindbergh is a German fashion photographer best known for his work in Vogue and other high-profile magazines covering the world of fashion. Starting out as an art director in Düsseldorf, Peter quickly developed an interest in photography and began shooting fashion stories for popular European magazines.

What has made Peter’s style so distinct is his creative vision which goes beyond traditional beauty standards and focuses on capturing natural beauty rather than enhancing it with retouching or cosmetics. Peter often chooses to use black-and-white film to draw attention to details, texture and personality. His work has been described as “timeless” due to its ability to stand the test of time despite changing trends.

Throughout his career Peter has worked with iconic models, actors and musicians such as Milla Jovovich, Cindy Crawford, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Madonna. Peter’s approach is to create a relaxed atmosphere which allows his subjects to express themselves without constraints. His collaborations are often described as intimate despite the large scale of the productions.

Peter Lindbergh’s work is not only seen in fashion magazines but also in galleries around the world. Peter believes that photography should be shared and accessible to everyone, regardless of their background or income level. He advocates for people to take time in their busy lives to appreciate the stillness and beauty of life - “It’s about inspiration and emotion … taking your time to really feel it.” Peter truly believes that the world would be a better place if we all took time to stop, look and appreciate the little things. Peter has left an indelible mark on fashion photography by refusing to compromise his vision and creating timeless images for generations to come.
