Peter Lindbergh / Photographs

A selection of photographs from photographer and filmmaker Peter Lindbergh’s expansive and influential career will be exhibited at The Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles until April 19. Lindbergh’s work helped define the contemporary era of fashion and portrait photography, having captured the most notable figures in the industry. With images of Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Amber Valletta, Kristen McMenamy, Gisele Bundchen and Cara Delevingne, Lindbergh goes beyond the iconography of the “supermodel”, and with a seductively intimate style and approach, his portraits reveal an inner truth to his subjects. His deeply saturated black and white photographs resonate a story-within-a-story, intentionally playing with traditional archetypes of women in photography-dancers, actresses, vamps and femme fatales, to define and redefine the narratives of the women who inhabit his world. Lindbergh’s photographs explore the intermediate spaces that exist between fashion and portrait, portrait and nude, nude and landscape.
