Born in 1944 and raised in Duisburg, the German photographer spent two years working on an uncompromising collection of 140 photographs that will shed an unusual light on his colossal oeuvre, spanning from the early 1980’s to the present day.
The exhibition offers an extensive, first-hand look at images that are usually short-lived, being mostly commissioned by monthly fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Rolling Stone or W Magazine. Lindbergh’s comprehension of fashion photography is that it can – and should – exist very well without putting fashion in the center. His images transcend their own context, becoming part of contemporary culture and photographic history. Untold Stories celebrates the legacy of Peter Lindbergh, who passed away in September 2019, while showcasing this master’s highly personal approach to fashion photography.
An exhibition of the Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, in cooperation with the Peter Lindbergh Studio and with further venues at Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt and MADRE in Naples.
