Peter Lindbergh

I get a little OCD when it comes to organizing my inspiration folders and all the random images that end up on my desktop. I have all sorts of categorized folders that I file everything into and one of the folders that gets pretty crazy is my “photographers” folder. Rather than just keeping them on my computer, I thought I’d start uploading some of them. These posts won’t be much different than a standard post on a photographer, but the photographers who I have a lot of images from are usually the bigger, more established guys.

This post is a collection of images from one of my all time favorites, Peter Lindbergh. I’ve always been so drawn to his more photo-journalist perspective and I love how he shows elements of the set in his photos, like lights, stands, backdrops, etc. Not only am I drawn to the style of his photos, but the impact he has had on fashion, being credited as one of the photographers to really blow up the whole “supermodel” thing in the 90′s.

    Super sick photos. It was the best of times in the 90′s to be around in.

    There are elements in these photos that certainly transcend much of the shallowness associated with fashion photography. How he includes pieces of the sets (especially in the foreground in some photos) seems to demonstrate the combination of reality/spectacle/scopophilia that fashion photography can play on when done right. Anyway, I’m not a photography theorist, but I like this work a lot. Its gritty and sexy and and technically skilled.

    I think one of his best pic ever is the one of Berri Smither… so amazing
