Legendary Photographer Peter Lindbergh Has Passed Away at the Age of 74

News broke on Instagram that legendary photographer Peter Lindbergh passed away at the age of 74. The German photographer/film director died very sudden. Lindberg was known for his cinematic images and he was responsible for starting the era of supermodels in the ’90s. Only four days ago Lindbergh posted his September Issue covers for Numéro Magazine and British Vogue featuring Adut Akech, Yara Shahidi, Laverne Cox and Chimamanda Ngozi.

Peter Lindbergh

Peter Lindbergh was born on November 23 in the year 1944 in Leszno, which was a German-occupied city in Poland. He was the photographer that basically launched the term “supermodel” in the ’90s, photographing his models in their natural state, with little to no makeup. 

In 1988, Lindbergh’s work became internationally acknowledged when he showed a new generation of models all dressed in white shirts. We’re talking about none other than Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington. In that same year, Lindbergh also shot Vogue’s first cover under Anna Wintour. For the British Vogue cover of January 1990, he shot a group of models all at once for the first time. Which was the start of the era of supermodels. Around the same time, Gianni Versace had hired the new supermodels and Peter for Versace’s Fall/Winter 1991 collection.
