Internationally-revered German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh revolutionized his metier with iconic images of the 1980s supermodels. From his beginnings, he has sought to capture the personality, character, and identity of fashion models, not just the glitter and glamour. In 1997 he presented his seminal book Images of Women comprising his work of the 1980s and 1990s. As a sequel, Lindbergh now presents Images of Women II featuring the highlights of his work created between 2005 and 2014: fashion photographs, nudes, and portraits of today's actresses and models such as Milla Jovovich, Isabella Rossellini, Monica Bellucci, Jamie King, Emmanuelle Seigner, Tilda Swinton, Kate Moss, Elisa Sednaoui, Jessica Chastain, Hye Jung Lee--and the occasional man, such as Hollywood grand seigneur Kirk Douglas.
The one thing this collection brings out most is variety - the different faces of beauty (within the twenty-something range, at least), the different roles women take on, and more. I recommend this to anyone who takes a thoughtful attitude toward women's beauty.
It's been out of print since '97 and used paperback copies have been going for way too much money. I've been carefully handling loose pages that have been peeling off destroyed binding because I still reference this book on a very regular basis.
Lucky for you, it's finally been rereleased in hardback in conjunction with a museum exhibit of his work that goes by the same name. If you're a photographer, have any interest in visual art, or just love fashion, it's a must have. You'll thank me later!
