Peter Lindbergh: A Different Vision on Fashion Photography

ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

10 September 2016 - 12 February 2017
Kunsthal Rotterdam presents major retrospective on Peter Lindbergh
Opening September 10th, the first exhibition in the Netherlands devoted to German photographer Peter Lindbergh, which is initiated, produced and toured by Kunsthal Rotterdam will feature more than 220 photographs. This spectacular overview of Lindbergh's extensive oeuvre will also present exclusive material varying from previously unseen material from personal notes, storyboards, props, polaroids, contact sheets and films to monumental prints, in a large-scale retrospective of the photographer's work. Lindbergh's pure black-and-white photographs have determined the course of fashion photography since the early 1980s.

The exhibition 'A Different Vision on Fashion Photography' is an ode to Lindbergh's multi-faceted oeuvre from 1978 to the present day. Regarded as one of the most influential fashion photographers, the multimedia exhibition is presented in a thematic approach marking his creative development and focusing on his themes, imaginary world and passions through the years, into nine different sections: Supermodels, Couturiers, Zeitgeist, Dance, The Darkroom, The Unknown, Silver Screen, Icons and an exclusive Rotterdam gallery. The 'Rotterdam Gallery', photographed for the October Issue of Dutch Vogue, shows the results of Lindbergh's shooting with Dutch top model Lara Stone and emerging talent Elise Hupkes in the Port of Rotterdam. Film excerpts and interviews with collaborators, models and actors throw light on Lindbergh's oeuvre on the basis of their collaboration with the photographer.

Peter Lindbergh introduced a new realism into photograph with timeless images redefining the norms of beauty. Lindbergh's visual idiom is influenced by the language of film and by playing with the type of the strong, self-willed woman, from the femme fatale to the heroine, but also the female dancer and the actress. His oeuvre is characterised by portraits that radiate a certain lack of inhibition and physical grace.

Press preview Friday 9 September, 1 pm - Opening Saturday 10 September, 5:30 pm*
The press conference will be held on Friday 9 September in the presence of Kunsthal Director Emily Ansenk, Peter Lindbergh, curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot and the supermodels.
