PETER LINDBERGH UNTOLD STORIES
Untold Stories, is the first self-curated exhibition by Peter Lindbergh at the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf and held shortly before his untimely death.
It was conceived as a blank canvas on which the photographer unleashed his creativity and imagination. With complete artistic freedom, Lindbergh selected a very personal collection that sheds an unexpected light on his colossal work. This book, the official catalog of a historical exhibition, offers a deep and first-hand look at a very personal collection.
When printing his photos, Lindbergh chose a special uncoated paper - a thin sheet with a smooth, porous surface - as a deliberate aesthetic statement.
Lindbergh's images, recognized around the world, have left an indelible mark on contemporary culture and the history of photography.
Here, the photographer experiments with his own work and tells new stories while staying true to his lexicon.
In both iconic and unpublished images, he challenges his own icons and presents intimate moments that he shared with personalities who were close to him for years, such as Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Robin Wright, Jessica Chastain, Jeanne Moreau, Naomi Campbell and Charlotte Rampling, among many others.
This volume features more than 150 photographs, many of them unpublished or little known, generally commissioned by monthly fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Rolling Stone and W Magazine, or The Wall Street Journal.
A long conversation between Lindbergh and the director of the Kunstpalast, Felix Krämer, as well as a tribute from his close friend Wim Wenders, offer new information on the creation of this collection.
The result is an intimate and personal statement by Lindbergh about his work.
