Amber Valetta by Peter Lindbergh
"The most interesting thing is not what they're wearing but who they are. Photography gives you the opportunity to use your sensibility and everything you are to say something about and be part of the world around you."
- Peter Lindbergh
Peter Lindbergh fought the perfection cult. He was all about the faces just the way they were. He gave us the chance to see the blemishes, the wrinkles, he made every single imperfection count. The imperfections were what made his subjects so relatable and so real. Even the biggest celebrities were not portrayed as perfectly polished dolls but as real human beings. Natalie Portman wrote that while she was photographer by Lindbergh, she was in her early pregnancy and couldn‘t tell anyone yet. The actress remembered that Lindbergh made her feel comfortable even when she felt she was about to be sick but couldn‘t tell anyone why.
