German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh dies

Paris /Peter Lindbergh, renowned for his black and white fashion photography, has died at the age of 74, his studio in the French capital confirmed to Efe on Wednesday.

The German photographer was considered a pioneer in his field, who knew how to redefine contemporary fashion photography and elevate women of all ages, the studio said in a statement.

The news of Lindbergh’s death on Tuesday was also announced on his official Instagram account, where a brief statement pointed out that he left behind his wife, four sons and seven grandchildren, as well as “a big void.”

Lindbergh was considered one of the most influential photographers in recent times, working for titles including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle and Marie Claire.

Catherine Deneuve, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista were among the celebrities on which he turned his lens.

He also left his mark in movie photography and forayed into the Pirelli calendar.

Lindbergh was born 23 November 1944 in Lissa, which was at the time part of Poland but later became part of Germany.

The son of a sweet seller, he spent his childhood in Duisburg and studied fine art in Berlin in the 1960s.

He moved to Paris in 1978, and spent the latter years of his life there, sharing his time between New York and Arles.

Over the years, he stood out as an advocate for women, pushing for a move away from stereotypes and denouncing the use of editing software to create “robots.”

His work and outlook contributed to the emergence of a new generation of models in the late 1980s. (September 4, 2019, EFE/Practica Español)
