Supported by Swarovski, the exhibition produced by the Kunsthal Rotterdam and premiered last winter, was exhibited at the Kunsthalle Munich for its second stop over the summer and now arrives at La Venaria Reale. Already seen by close to 325.000 visitors, the exhibition has now opened in Turin.
The show is curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot and presents a major survey of the work of this unique and highly influential photographer. Celebrated for his iconic, often cinematic images and widely regarded as one of the most influential fashion photographers of our time, Peter Lindbergh has enjoyed a multi-faceted, forty-year career that continues to this day. He is best known for the introduction of a new realism in photography, which plays with the notion of the authentic, strong and self-willed woman, from femme fatale to heroine, redefining the standards of beauty. This extraordinary, singular vision completely changed the course of fashion photography.
A Different Vision on Fashion Photography is an ode to Peter Lindbergh’s distinctive oeuvre from 1978 to the present day. The show has a thematic approach, marking his creative development and focusing on the passions he developed over the years. Eight different sections have been devised: Supermodels, Couturiers, Zeitgeist, Dance, The Unknown, Darkroom, Silver Screen and Icons.
