No photographer working, it could be argued, touches Peter Lindbergh when it come to black and white.
He turns gorgeous women into icons. Most of his images are now legendary, recognizable even to those not with little interest in fashion magazines.
I love him best though when he goes wildly cinematic and dramatic. Mixing alien crashes with supermodels, refashioning The Birds with a more sinister eye, and ingeniously recasting Lolita with an early 1990’s Milla Jovovich and Harry Dean Stanton – these are the kinds of editorial spreads that leave a mark on ones brain.
