Peter Lindbergh Photography

“This should be the responsibility of photographers today to free women, and finally everyone, from the terror of youth and perfection.”

Lindbergh stated in 2016 that “A fashion photographer should help define the image of the contemporary woman or man in their time to reflect a certain social or human reality. How surreal is the business agenda of today to retouch all signs of life and experience, to retouch the face itself’s very private reality?

January 1990 cover of British Vogue, assembled in downtown New York for Ms. Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Ms. Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Tatjana Patitz. Two years earlier he had photographed some of the females on a Malibu beach for an American Vogue editorial, as well as for the magazine’s first cover under a fresh editor-in-chief in 1988— Anna Wintour.

“It was a fresh generation and that new generation came with a fresh understanding of females,” he later clarified of the revered shoot that inspired George Michael’s 1990 single “Freedom” clip, staring at the models and cementing their status as household names.

“It was the first picture of them together as a group,” Mr. Lindbergh said. “I never had the idea that this was history. Never for one second.”

Lindbergh is credited as the one who began the supermodel era formally. His cover encouraged singer George Michael to cast those models into the video for his song “Freedom’ 90,” while Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace for his Fall-Winter 1991 fashion show featuring the fresh supermodels featured in Lindbergh’s pictures two years ago.
