‘Peter Lindbergh. Another vision on fashion photography‘ is the title of the exposition dedicated to one of the greatest fashion photographers of the world, which is on show until February 14th, at the Reggia di Venaria Reale (Turin), also known as Venaria Palace, a former royal residence of the Royal House of Savoy that in 1997 was included in the UNESCO Heritiave List.
The exhibition, which aims to repeat the success of the one dedicate to McCurry’s and hosted in the Venaria Palace last year, is a great overview of Lindbergh’s impressive work that showcases iconic images of four decades of the author’s work paired with exclusive material: personal notes, storyboards, set pieces, and polaroids. From femine fatal to heroin, but also to dancer and actress, Lindbergh’s exhibition is divided into 9 sections: Supermodel – photos of 90s supermodels, such as Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Linda Evangelisti; Stilisti – explores the way in which the author contributed to shape the brand image of 25 fashion designers; Zeitgeist – gender and political issues represented with images that raise questions and face taboos; Danza – dance; Camera Oscura – dark room; L’ignoto – revealing Lindbergh’s interest in science fiction; Il grande schermo – illustrating the influences movie sets and productions on Lindbergh’s work; and Icone – a visual path that spans over four decades of timeless images, featuring iconic pop culture figures featuring a powerful emotional impact.
The exhibition, created by the Kunsthal from Rotterdam, is curated by Thierry Maxime Loriot and is organized by the Consorzio delle Residenze Sabaude.
