Kunsthalle, Munich
From 13 April to 27 August 2017

 

This spectacular exhibition about German photographer Peter Lindbergh, one of the most influential fashion photographers of the past forty years, features more than 220 photographs. His iconic images, with which he heralded the supermodel phenomenon in the 1990s, will be presented along with unpublished photographs and unseen material, varying from personal notes, storyboards, props, polaroids, contact sheets and ilms to monumental prints.

His avant-garde images quickly addressed concerns of society in a world with established aesthetic codes: his pure black-and-white photographs have determined the course of fashion photography since the early 1980s. Lindbergh’s predominantly black and white photographs that capture the leeting moment opened up a new dimension of realism in fashion photography, revolutionizing the visual idiom of the well-known magazines and fashion labels. Lindbergh was the first to focus on the unique personalities of his models. Instead of beautifully dressed human “clothes horses”, he portrayed self-assured, expressive personas, from the femme fatale to the heroine, but also the female dancer and the actress. His oeuvre is characterized by portraits that radiate a certain lack of inhibition and physical grace.

The exhibition From Fashion to Reality is an homage to Lindbergh’s multifaceted 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 Darkroom, The Unknown, Silver Screen and Icons.

Since much of it is published in shortlived print media, like monthly fashion magazines, some of Lindbergh’s work has faded into obscurity, despite its historical significance. Other photographs have never been shown in public. For this exhibition, Lindbergh opened up the doors to his archive. Additionally, film excerpts and interviews with collaborators, models and actors throw light on the artist. Known for his memorable cinematic images, Peter Lindbergh is recognized as one of the most inluential contemporary photographers.
