Peter Lindbergh: From fashion to reality

“The women are more important than the clothes” is a statement that Peter Lindbergh said many years ago. For him, photography is not about products, is about humanity. As a recognized photographer in the fashion world during the 90s, he was in part responsible for the top model’s phenomenon during these years. Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford or Christy Turlington were some of the models that pose in front of his objective. Black and white photographies composed his works, with an unusual simple beauty, without any tricks, showing more personality than superficial prettiness.

In this exhibition, curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, the visitor will not only see some of this 90s photographies but also, films and exclusive and unseen material like storyboards, props, polaroids, and contact sheets.

The exhibition will be open from 13th of April until 27th of August 2017 at Kunsthalle (Theatinerstraße 8, Munich).
