Substance and Shadow

Peter Lindbergh, Alberto Giacometti, Buste de Diego (1964–1965), Zurich, 2016

Giacometti is constantly reinventing himself, each new sculpture is at once very close to and very different from the one before. And I strongly feel how everything he creates is completely connected to him. For me that’s the greatest quality an artist can have.
