Peter Lindbergh - A Different Vision on Fashion Photography
Peter Lindbergh is today regarded as one of the most influential fashion photographers of the past forty years. Lindbergh’s pure black-and-white photographs have determined the course of fashion photography since the 1980s.
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.

Guided tours round the main exhibition can be given in Dutch, English, and German for up to 20 people. Architectural tours are also available (on request). Larger groups will be led ...
