Now

I would like to say that I grew up with him ... It is his pictures that I have been deeply impressed and admiring for decades.

He must really be a great person. But I only know five minutes of him, even though we spent several hours in the museum. I stand in front of photographs that are gigantic in every respect and listen to the explanations, some of which are spoken by Peter Lindbergh himself, the audio guide that can really be recommended.

Kunsthal Rotterdam, in close collaboration with the curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot and Peter Lindbergh, has initiated, produced and sent the exhibition Peter Lindbergh – “A Different Vision on Fashion Photography” on its way to prestigious museums around the world. After the world premiere at Kunsthal Rotterdam, this exhibition is now on view at Kunsthalle Munich under the title Peter Lindbergh – “From Fashion to Reality”. But only until August 31, 2017, when the multimedia exhibition with more than 220 photographs, exclusive and previously unpublished material, personal notes, storyboards, polaroids, contact prints, films and much more will be touring on to Turin.

“How crazy and unreal is the idea of eliminating all experience from one face?” Peter Lindbergh

Peter Lindbergh is one of the most influential fashion photographers. Since the early 1980s, his multi-faceted black and white photographs have changed the way fashion photography is done.

“This should be the photographer's responsibility today: to liberate women and ultimately everyone from the terror of the youth and perfection mania.” Peter Lindbergh
