Peter Lindbergh’s career spanned more than three decades, in which the legendary photographer produced some of the most iconic and highly regarded fashion photography of the 20th century.
Lindbergh, who died Tuesday at the age of 74, was known for his work with supermodels of the late Eighties and early Nineties, including the likes of Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, among others. His photography style leaned toward natural, candid images often shot in black and white.
