Peter Lindbergh to get major Retrospective

German Fashion Photographer Peter Lindbergh is getting a major retrospective in September 2016 produced and toured by Kunsthal Rotterdam.

Curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, the exhibition titled ‘A Different Vision on Fashion Photography’ will run from Sept. 10, 2016, until Feb. 12, 2017. It will feature more than 220 photographs as well as exclusive material varying from previously unseen material from personal notes, storyboards, props, polaroids, contact sheets and films to monumental prints.

Serving as an ode to Lindbergh’s work from 1978 to the present day, the exhibition will be divided into nine different sections – from Supermodels and Courturiers to The Darkroom and the Silver Screen. ‘This exhibition is not a chronological survey, but a narrative in which you discover the universe of Peter Lindbergh through his unique eye, his strong themes and his collaborations with artists like Pina Bausch and Jenny Holzer, but also reveals the humanism found in his work, seen in a social context. It says a lot about his own values, his vision on ageism, beauty and feminity, on social issues and about the boundless creativity and imagination found in his photographs,’ explained Loriot.

A major monograph published by Taschen and designed by award winning graphic design firm Paprika will also be presented. The book gathers more than 400 iconic and unpublished images from four decades of Lindbergh’s photography to celebrate his unique and game changing storytelling presented through twenty-five fashion designers.

After the World premiere at the Kunsthal Rotterdam, the exhibition will travel to prestigious museums around the world.
