— Peter Lindbergh: Known And The Unknown

Galleria Carla Sozzani in Milan, Italy, presents ‘Known And ‘The Unknown” – an exhibition of renowned German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh.

On show until the 4th of November, 2012, the retrospective presents a two series of Lindbergh’s work. The combination is an in depth insight into a master celebrated for capturing the organic essence of fashion heavyweights.


The first section, ‘Known – Images Of Women’, is a compilation of forty images shot for magazines such as Vogue, Interview, Allure, Harper’s Bizarre and Marie Claire. Well-known for the intimate portraits of the beautiful women he photographs – such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelist, Milla Jojovich, Kristen McMenamy, Kate Moss and Catherine Deneuve – the series articulates the spirit of the artist’s creative influence within the fashion world.


‘The Unknown’ section of the presentation, contrarily, represents a personal project articulating the visual journey informed by Lindenbergh’s recent movie series ‘Invasion’. The film depicts – in no chronological order – a classic narrative mixing hollywood glamour, science fiction and cinematic elements of the german filmmaker fritz lang. Through this work – with Milla Jovovich as the main protagonist – Lindbergh offers a fragment of daily life, full of uncertainty and the shared unpredictable events inevitably entwined.


Though two separate projects, lindbergh manages to consistently exercise his skill in encapsulating the natural attitude of the female identity – all without the artificial intervention of special props or photo manipulation – to holistically represent his subject and intent.
