Lindbergh’s pure black-and-white photographs have determined the course of fashion photography since the early 1980s.  For more than 40 years Peter Lindbergh creates pieces of art with his fashion photography.

The exhibition is divided into nine different sections: Supermodels, Couturiers, Zeitgeist, Dance, The Darkroom, The Unknown, Silver Screen, Icons and an exclusive Rotterdam gallery.

The ‘Rotterdam Gallery’, photographed for the October Issue of Dutch Vogue especially made for the exhibition, shows the results of Lindbergh’s shoot of Dutch top model Lara Stone and emerging talent Elisa Hupkes in the Port of Rotterdam.
