Peter Lindbergh Has Passed Away (Instagram)
Legendary fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh passed away yesterday at the age of 74. The news was announced on his official Instagram account. Lindbergh shot for Vogue as far back as the 1970s, but he exploded into prominence in the late ’80s for his photographs of the supers. Particularly, his January ’90 cover of British Vogue, which featured Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington, and Cindy Crawford and is considered the kick-off to the era of the supermodel. His striking black and white photographs of models, celebrities, and dancers dominated the ’90s, adding elements of grit and glamor in a way that came to define the decade’s aesthetic.
