EXHIBITION: PETER LINDBERGH Images of Women & The Unknown



Images of Women & The Unknown is the name of the photo exhibition by renowned photographer Peter Lindbergh

PETER LINDBERGH: Images of Women & The Unknown
April 8th – May 10th, 2014
Gallery HDLU (Trg Zrtava Fasizma 16, Zagreb, Croatia)

Throughout April and May in the Gallery HDLU in Zagreb (Croatia) there will be over 150 photographs on display by renowned photographer Peter Lindbergh, one of the world’s most famous photographers. The displayed works, which Lindbergh will arrange himself in Zagreb, are taken from two of his individual art series Images of Women and The Unknown, which gave the name to the exhibition. This is Lindbergh’s first art exhibition in this region of Europe since 1998, which was displayed in Vienna, and will be one of Lindbergh’s only full exhibitions in Europe this year.
“In Zagreb I will present a selection of work from two series of photographs taken earlier on in my career. These are photographs from the series ‘Images of Woman’, which defined and created a new concept of femininity in the late 80’s and 90’s, while the second component will feature photographs from the ‘The Unknown’ opus in which human beings, the subjects of the photos, are exposed to fears they haven’t met before, in which everything is fictional…” briefly announced Peter Lindbergh about the content of his exhibition in Zagreb.
Even though he is celebrated as one of the world’s most prestigious photographers, to this day this fashion visionary does not fall into the conventional description of photographers. Lindbergh’s start and journey as a photographer truly was different, because unlike many of his colleagues, he didn’t know from the beginning that he wanted to be an artist and a photographer. Instead, Lindbergh’s journey was marked by a variety of odd jobs until he first connected with a photo camera in his thirties. Lindbergh began his career as a photographer in 1971 in Germany during his art studies when he began to work as an assistant to the famous Hans Lux. He soon became independent and moved to Paris where he quickly became a respected and desired photographer because of his creativity and the quality of his work. After his first serious job for French Vogue, editors of the most prestigious fashion and lifestyle magazines around the world as well as the marketing departments of various world-famous cosmetics companies practically began fighting for him and his work to be featured in their editorials, TV, and ad campaigns. He is the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the ‘photographer’s Oscar’ the Lucie Award for his accomplishments in fashion photography. Lindbergh is known primarily for capturing world supermodels and the 1990 black-and-white British Vogue cover with Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington, and Linda Evangelista. It is interesting to note that at the start of his career nobody would have imagined that Lindbergh would become one of the most famous, most wanted, and most respected fashion photographers since he never followed certain trends and styles, but focused on what mattered the most to him, which as he says is that ”a woman is always more important than the clothes she wears.”

Peter Lindbergh’s exhibition in Zagreb will be displayed across all of the Home of Croatian Artists spaces – the PM gallery, the PRSTEN gallery, and the BACVA gallery. As well as photographs, one part of the exhibition will feature a video installation which the artist himself, being inspired by the architecture of the gallery, will accommodate exclusively for his Zagreb exhibition! This video component to Lindbergh’s works sets the exhibition in Zagreb apart from his other showings in the past and in the coming years.
