About

Peter Lindbergh’s now-iconic photographs of women derive inspiration from early narrative cinema and street photography in their fleeting observations and compositional elegance. His Eastern European heritage can be traced in the stark and guileless realism that frames the feminine beauty of his subjects. In his editorial work for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, and many other international magazines, Lindbergh replaces staged, calculated glamour with a vérité approach, enhanced by his use of high-contrast black-and-white photography. He uses body movement—in particular modern dance—to celebrate the human form in a way that carries elements of both antiquity and modernity. In the 1990s Lindbergh garnered international acclaim for launching the careers of the “Supermodels”—Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Stephanie Seymour, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista. His images became homage to the new modern women.

Lindbergh was born in 1944 in Leszno, Poland. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including Images of Women, Bunkamura Museum of Art, Tokyo (1996, traveled to Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Kunsthaus Wien, Vienna; Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome; and Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, among others); Stories Supermodels, Ludwiggalerie Schloss Oberhausen, Germany (2003); Visioni, FORMA Centro Internazionale di Fotografia, Milan, Italy (2006); Beauduc, Les Rencontres d’Arles, France (2008); The Unknown, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing (2011); Fotomuseum, Antwerp (2011–12); Berlin, Maison de la Photographie, Lille, France (2013); The Unknown and Images of Women, HDLU Museum, Zagreb, Croatia (2014); and Peter Lindbergh/Garry Winogrand: Women on Street, NRW-Forum Düsseldorf (2017).

Lindbergh lives and works in Paris, New York, and Arles, France.

D’après modèle

March 16–June 30, 2019
Musée Toulouse-Lautrec, Albi, France

This exhibition features more than eighty works, realized between the artist’s arrival in Paris, in the 1920s, and the end of his career. The show includes thirty bronze and plaster sculptures, forty-four drawings, and twelve prints. The chronological and thematic unfolding illustrates the essential relationship between Alberto Giacometti’s drawings and his sculptures—the former, as the artist often reiterated, being an indispensable tool for understanding a subject and for aiding perception in general. The show includes Peter Lindbergh’s 2017 photographs of Giacometti’s work in the Fondation Giacometti collection in Paris.

Peter Lindbergh was invited to photograph bronzes and plasters by Alberto Giacometti held at the Fondation Giacometti, Paris, in 2017. Lindbergh’s black-and-white photographs capture the anxiety behind the beauty that characterizes Giacometti and his perpetual search for authenticity and provide fresh perspectives, which allow for new discovery. The photographs are accompanied by unpublished drawings by Giacometti.
