If there is one thing we remember from photographer Peter Lindbergh, it is the intensity of his black and white.
Born in Poland in 1944, he quickly became fascinated with art and during his beginnings rubbed shoulders with famous photographers like Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Hans Feurer. Through his journey and his goal of looking for “the soul of the model”, he will create a new form of realism and make famous many models, with whom he likes to work. Because Peter Lindbergh loves women, whom he likes to free from certain constraints and dictates, like that of make-up or youth. However, the women photographed by Peter Lindbergh are no less glamorous, elegant, iconic.
Iconic is also his collaboration with Dior. Lindbergh and Dior, two pillars of fashion who invented and reinvented the advertising campaign. The photographer was one of the house’s closest associates.
Dior x Lindbergh NY traces the legendary photographer’s latest project. His idea ? Seventy years of the history of DIOR set in the frenzied decor of Times Square. With this disproportionate idea, Peter Lindbergh convinced the house to travel across the Atlantic an unequaled number of his most emblematic silhouettes. The two-volume work presents the result of the photo shoot, new images, a frenzy, a memorable, unique moment captured by the photographer’s eye. Perhaps his most beautiful photos, perhaps his most precious legacy, the will of the photographer who is now missing and very much missed.
