PETER LINDBERGH: A DIFFERENT VISION ON FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY. Ed. by Thierry-Maxime Loriot. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2016. 524 pp. with 367 ills. (29 col.). 35 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783836552820 Trilingual in English, French and German.
This large-format volume is published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition of the same name that opened at the Kunsthal Rotterdam, but the book does not specifically document the show. Publisher's description: When German photographer Peter Lindbergh shot five young models in downtown New York City in 1989, he produced not only the iconic British Vogue January 1990 cover but also the birth certificate of the supermodels. The image didn't just bring revered faces together for the first time; it marked the beginning of a new fashion era and a new understanding of female beauty. Coinciding with his major retrospective at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, this book gathers more than 400 images from four decades of Lindbergh's photography to celebrate his unique and game changing storytelling. Raw and seductive at once, his trademark monochrome pictures are marked by a romantic and narrative vision which brought a new vision and artistry to the art and fashion world. Considered a pioneer in photography, he introduced a form of new realism by redefining the standards of beauty with timeless images. Whether in single portraits or poetic compositions of figure and landscape, the imagery is inflected by cinematic language and by a play with female archetypes as his subjects adopt the guise of dancers, actresses, heroines, and femme fatales.
