Quotes about Peter Lindbergh "Those pictures that Peter captured are definitely some of the most incriminating of the supermodel era.“ Christy Turlington

"At the time we started together, Peter's style was shockingly different…It's like being photographed right when you wake up in the morning.“ Cindy Crawford

"Of all the people I've worked with, he's the one who has photographed the real me, whoever that is."Linda Evangelista

Quotes of Peter Lindbergh About colour â&#x20AC;&#x161;When you work in colour what you are looking for is a sort of first-degree reality, whereas in black-and-white you can elaborate on that reality. <Only with black-and-white can one convey that kind of authenticity.â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

About women and fashion industry "There is so much time you waste looking for new faces. You don't want a new woman every five days. I started with my girls when they were 19 or 20, and they became friends too. They became 25, 28, 30, really incredible, mature, intelligent, and extraordinarily beautiful. After all, each had to run a one-woman million-dollar business. You don't become a supermodel by being stupid."

Inspirations • • • • •

Peter Lindbergh takes his inspiration from the streets rather than the rarefied fantasy bubble that is the world of high fashion. Feeling of freedom and innocence from his travelling in Europe in the 60s. Theatrical sets. Surrealistic futurism. Contrast between cities and nature came from his child memories (factories and forest on the opposite sides of the river in Duisburg )

Peter Lindbergh ‚Fashion photography has gotten a little lost. There is a lot of carnival going on. The hair has gotten too crazy and the make-up. At the moment, everybody is trying to do young. They have to look young or dress young. Youth is so overdone,‛ Peter Lindbergh says. ‚All the advertising and magazine covers today — they don’t look like natural women. For me, that’s a real pity. There’s all this retouching. A little humanity would do good, especially in fashion photography.‛
