"The merely beautiful has always bored me. I am interested in the powerful and real." ─ Peter Lindbergh.
With such extraordinary career successes as the first cover of American Vogue with Anna Wintour as editor-in-chief, for which she brought together a group of young women who would become the supermodels of the 1990s , and numerous solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing and the Gagosian Gallery in London, Peter Lindbergh is a master of photography who has left his mark on the history of this discipline .
The industry quickly fell in love with his almost anti-fashion fashion photography, in which he captures the spirit of the times and the soul of the models instead of launching himself in search of that perfection that is so persecuted today, which Lindbergh considers inhumane.
Handpicked from 37,000 previously unseen photographs taken for its groundbreaking 2017 Pirelli calendar, the images in this book offer an intimate look at a cast of extraordinarily talented women: Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Charlotte Rampling, Dame Helen Mirren, Jessica Chastain, Kate Winslet, Léa Seydoux, Lupita Nyong'o, Penelope Cruz, Robin Wright, Rooney Mara, Uma Thurman, and Zhang Ziyi.
His message is simple. These Lindbergh images speak of a different kind of beauty, far from the current obsession with youth and perfection ; a beauty full of individuality, courage to be oneself and personal sensitivity.
