Icon-Icon Opinion : 

If fashion is an eternal recurrence, you have to know its universal givers. Peter Lindbergh is undoubtedly one of them.

Simple and aimed at revealing the subject’s soul, Peter Lindbergh’s photography has challenged the standards of beauty. Accentuating wrinkles instead of erasing them, ennobling said flaws, Peter Lindbergh goes straight to the essence. Without too much make-up or beauty, he photographs his subjects “in all honesty” as he liked to say.

Fashion, so ephemeral, frozen in black and white, becomes timeless under the eye of a legend of photography. Especially for the house of Dior, Peter Lindbergh has captured the most beautiful fashion images of the turn of the century!

He is also and before anyone else credited with launching the supermodel phenomenon – an image, on the cover of British Vogue in January 1990 … Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington catapulted to the rank of absolute icon. This is the power of photography from Peter Lindbergh

This book thus brings together unpublished images – the first images of this sacred icon of photography!
