Known for his memorable black and white cinematic images, Peter Lindbergh is rightly celebrated as a pioneer in fashion photography. His belief that “beauty is having the courage to be yourself” has had an enduring influence. During his distinguished career, he collaborated with all major fashion brands and magazines, and his work is featured in the permanent collections of art museums and prestigious exhibitions around the world.
The exhibition Untold Stories is a retrospective on Lindbergh (1944-2019). The selection of images was curated by the artist himself, shortly before his untimely death in September 2019. It’s an intimate exhibition, which pays tribute to his life and work. While many of the photographs are famous, there are also a number of unpublished ones, telling untold stories, which, when seen together, reveal as much about the man behind the lens as the personalities of those they capture.
