A Different Vision on Fashion Photography
Kunsthal, Rotterdam (September 10, 2016 — February 12, 2017)
The Kunsthal Rotterdam presents ‘A Different Vision on Fashion Photography’, a major retrospective concentrating on Peter Lindbergh's unique, fashion-related work. Curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, this first exhibition in the Netherlands devoted to the photographer features more than 200 photographs.
>The exhibition ‘A Different Vision on Fashion Photography’ is an ode to Lindbergh’s unique, fashion-related oeuvre from 1978 to the present day.
This spectacular overview of Lindbergh’s extensive œuvre 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. His avant-garde images quickly addressed the concerns and stakes of society with his singular vision, in a world with established aesthetic codes. Lindbergh’s pure black-and-white photographs have determined the course of fashion photography since the early 1980s.
The multimedia exhibition is presented in a thematic approach marking his creative development and focusing on his themes, imaginary world and passions through the years, into nine different sections: Supermodels, Couturiers, Zeitgeist, Dance, The Darkroom, The Unknown, Silver Screen, Icons and an exclusive Rotterdam gallery.
‘A Different Vision on Fashion Photography’ is initiated, produced and toured by Kunsthal Rotterdam.
